After Saturday’s game, offensive lineman Thaddeus Coleman said he wanted to practice red zone offence nonstop until the team figured it out.

Quite simply, he was sick of not scoring touchdowns.

Even when it’s from the bench Jovon Johnson gives the Roughriders his all.

The 12-year CFL veteran has found himself on the sidelines of the last two Roughriders games as head coach Chris Jones opted to rest some of his older defensive backs and try out other players in their place.

Even with Zach Collaros back in the picture, Roughriders head coach Chris Jones doesn’t seem to want to commit to a starting quarterback.

Or at least to admit it publicly.

Back in June when the Roughriders signed Mic’hael Brooks, many wondered why the team needed another defensive lineman.

Already stacked with stars like Willie Jefferson, Charleston Hughes and Zack Evans, it didn’t exactly appear necessary, but for Jones it was a no-brainer.

Defence powers the Roughriders past Ti-Cats 18-13

It was late in the second quarter, the score was 4-0 for Hamilton and the Roughriders needed a spark.

The offence had been struggling, rotating between Brandon Bridge and David Watford seemingly at random, and something needed to be done.

Enter Charleston Hughes.
