SINOPOLI MIGHT NOT FACE RIDERS
The Ottawa Redblacks could be without receiver Brad Sinopoli against the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Friday night. Sinopoli, who has been bothered by a sore right shoulder, could be replaced by Jake Harty at slotback. “It’s precautionary with him,” said Redblacks coach Rick Campbell, who called it a “game-time decision.” The coach added: “I made him stop practising (Wednesday). I figured why not give him a chance to heal as much as he can? We’re going to see how healthy he is. We want to make sure all the guys we have dressing are healthy enough.” It would be a big loss if he can’t go. Sinopoli has 91 receptions on the season, three behind the all-time record for an Ottawa CFL player (Marc Lewis, 1994). He has 1,009 yards in catches, fifth in the league.
