Roughriders seek justice for injured Davis

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have asked the CFL to look into an incident in last week's game against the Ottawa Renegades which resulted in an injury to defensive lineman Nate Davis.
The Roughriders claim Renegades guard Morris Unutoa was guilty of a blocking infraction early in the fourth quarter against Davis which left him with strained knee ligaments.
Davis, a league all-star last season, is expected to miss two to six weeks with the injury.
"We're sending in a review to see if something comes of it," said Roughriders head coach Danny Barrett. "Nothing was called during the game, but we've lost a guy for a prolonged period of time."
Unutoa could face a fine or suspension if the league decides to accept Saskatchewan's argument.
Renegades head coach and GM Joe Paopao said he saw nothing illegal after viewing the game films.
............well, of course that's what Joejoe is going to say, duh, but if this is so blatant how come we haven't heard the rider fans screaming for justice?........is Danny grasping for straws?.........
