SI­NOP­OLI MIGHT NOT FACE RIDERS

Ottawa Citizen - - SPORTS - Tim Baines

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.
