We may not know until game time if Kevin Glenn is available to play for the Roughriders this week, but the good news is nothing is broken.
Glenn left Saturday’s game against Winnipeg after hitting his throwing hand on one the Bombers defenders.
He was seen on the sideline with ice on his hand and Jones had no update when the game was over.
Glenn was out on the field on Monday afternoon, however, he was more of a spectator. He was not wearing a helmet or pads and didn’t throw the football.
Head coach Chris Jones said his injury is day-to-day.
“It’s not broken, so it’s just a matter of what KG can handle and we’ll make sure our other guys are ready if not,” Jones said.
Backup quarterback Brandon Bridge came in for Glenn and went four of eight and an interception. He also rushed for a touchdown.
“At the end of the day it is a job, it is the backup’s job to go in and get the job done and keep the team high spirits and get a couple (wins) until he comes back,” Bridge said.
“When that injury did happen, I was obviously ready to go and the coaches asked me to see what plays I wanted to run and what was the best thing for it. The game plan still stayed the same.”
Jones said overall, Bridge did alright in relief, but he’ll need to be sharper if he’s the quarterback that gets the start this week.
“I thought he played okay, he wishes he can get the one throw back,” Jones said of the interception. “He’s got to do a good job of protecting the football.”
And he may not be the only backup we see on Friday against Hamilton. Jones did not rule out Vernon Adams Jr. getting some reps in as well.
The Roughriders have two more practices at Mosaic Stadium this week before they travel to Hamilton on Wednesday.
Tuesday’s practice has been closed to the public and the media.
