"Miracle, no torn ACL," said head coach Corey Chamblin. "Just a severely hyper-extended knee."
So that means no surgery for Sanders, but he's certainly not out of the woods. Chamblin does not expect Sanders to be back on the field for the rest of the regular season, but he did say there was a possibility he could be back this year if the team makes a playoff run.
"I really say, it's up to his knee," he said.
The time off appears to have done some good for the Riders. Defensive backs Eddie Russ, Milt Collins and Woodny Turenne were all back on the field Wednesday morning. Offensive lineman Brendon LaBatte was also out there.
Defensive linemen Keith Shologan and Brent Hawkins were not, but Chamblin expects Hawkins to practice Thursday. They just held him back a day because of the cold.
Jock Sanders increased roll really seemed to turn the Rider O around...perhaps he will defy all and be back early. I am hoping that with Carr's presense things will also open up. His TD last week showed why he can be such a waepon...DD will benifit from his frame.
Also stumbled upon a good interview with Dyce:[url=http://www.thestarphoenix.com/sports/Role+Dyce+boosts+riders+offence/7341318/story.html]http://www.thestarphoenix.com/sports/Ro ... story.html[/url]
