“We are optimistic Trevor will make a full recovery and are not ready to rule out a return at some point later in the season,” the team’s statement said.

“We know Trevor will tackle his recovery with the same focus and tenacity he shows on the football field. Moving forward, Mason Fine will be our starting quarterback.”

Roughriders’ vice president of football operations and general manager Jeremy O’Day will speak with media ahead of the Riders’ practice on Tuesday morning. The Riders travel to Vancouver to face the BC Lions on Saturday at BC Place.
