Figured a game thread may as well get going.
We've all heard the rumors that Reilly's injury was worse than originally let on, but it is supposedly confirmed[url=http://www.tsn.ca/eskimos-to-start-qb-nichols-against-roughriders-reilly-available-to-play-1.133243]http://www.tsn.ca/eskimos-to-start-qb-n ... y-1.133243[/url]
The Esks have signed Goltz and say Nichols is starting. This could still easily be a mind game, but everything has indicated Reilly will be out, so likely is. They say he will practice and be available...but there have been pretty consistent rumors he has a small fracture in his foot.
At any rate, it looks increasingly like it will be the battle of the backups. You want to face and beat a team at its best in the playoffs...it is a pride thing...but at least both sides are likely to play backups.
