Jones: Glenn's injured hand feeling better

--

Chris Jones had a little good news Tuesday regarding the status of starter Kevin Glenn.

The Saskatchewan head coach/GM told reporters Glenn's injured right hand was feeling better but said he remains day-to-day. Glenn suffered the injury in the Roughriders' 48-28 loss Saturday to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and didn't practise Monday.

"He says he feels better today," Jones told reporters following the Riders' closed practice. "We didn't let him throw just as a precaution, so we'll look at it (Wednesday)."

The Riders also re-signed linebacker Otha Foster and added receiver/kick-returner Marcus Thigpen to the practice roster. Foster was released by the NFL's Baltimore Ravens after spending the 2016 campaign with Saskatchewan.

Foster also played two seasons with Edmonton (2014-15), winning a Grey Cup in 2015 with Jones as the Eskimos head coach.

Foster's arrival comes a day after Saskatchewan re-signed linebacker Jeff Knox Jr., who was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Knox spent 2015-16 with the Riders.

If Glenn can't play, it's expected Canadian Brandon Bridge will face Hamilton. Bridge, a native of Mississauga, Ont., is the last Canadian quarterback to start a CFL game, doing so in the Montreal Alouettes' 2015 regular-season finale, a 30-24 overtime loss to Saskatchewan.

Bridge completed 4-of-8 passes for 67 yards and an interception against Winnipeg while adding a 10-yard run. The six-foot-five Canadian is 13-of-20 passing this season for 203 yards with three TDs and the one pick.

Bridge started his CFL career with Montreal in 2015 and has completed 50-of-73 passes for 648 yards with five TDs and two interceptions overall.

Bridge is one of two Canadian quarterbacks on CFL rosters this season. Calgary native Andrew Buckley is the Stampeders' backup behind reigning league MVP Bo Levi Mitchell.

The five-foot-nine, 195-pound Thigpen played previously in the CFL with Hamilton (2010-11) and spent time in the NFL with Buffalo, Oakland, Indianapolis, Tampa Bay, Miami, New England, Denver and Philadelphia.

Saskatchewan also released American defensive lineman Royce LaFrance and Canadian kicker Brett Lauther.

FINE FOR MAAS?: Edmonton head coach Jason Maas will learn this week if he'll be fined for his temper tantrum during the Eskimos' 25-22 loss to the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday.

Maas had his meltdown just before halftime after losing a pass interference challenge with Calgary leading 12-9. When the ruling was announced, Maas slammed his headset to the ground.

He appeared to then pick up a broken piece of the headset and throw it towards the Edmonton bench. The Eskimos received an objectionable conduct penalty. …
