It didn’t take long for Chris Jones to get upset with his team at Saskatchewan Roughriders’ training camp.
Following the second day of camp Monday at Griffiths Stadium, Jones went off on the group’s performance.
“It’s usually Day 3, so it jumped on us a little early,” explained the Riders G-M and head coach. “Hopefully (Tuesday) we come back out and get a little more done.”
Jones said it doesn’t look good for a quick return for Canadian receiver Jake Harty…if he returns at all. Harty injured a knee during Sunday’s opening workout. The Green and White announced Monday they had released offensive lineman Marcus Oliver, whose signing had been announced Sunday. Defensive tackle Zack Evans left Monday’s workout for precautionary reasons with what Jones called tightness in his lower body. Defensive halfback Crezdon Butler also departed early; his status wasn’t known. Plus, defensive tackle Rakim Cox has yet to make an appearance at camp. Jones said the second-year lineman, who hurt his back tying a shoe, is expected on the field in the next few days.
Tuesday’s training camp session is being held at Saskatoon Minor Football Field.
