Football: Acadia's Richardson may start for Eskies

Week 2 kicks off in the CFL in a couple hours, keep an eye out for Elliott Richardson in the Edmonton-Montreal game (7:30 Eastern, TSN/RDS).
"(Eskimos coach) Richie Hall wasn't tipping his hand totally, but he did indicate he was leaning toward starting Elliott Richardson at safety in place of injured veteran Scott Gordon.

"Richardson and Jason Nugent have been battling for the right to start Thursday’s game against the Montreal Alouettes, and Hall said it’s a “good chance” the rookie Richardson will get the nod.

" 'He’s had a good training camp, played well. Nugent did a good job, but right now, Elliott is a little ahead.' " Edmonton Journal

    Did you see the putrid Sandy Beveridge tonight? Pitiful.

  3. Hey Anonymous 3:48, How come the Alouettes have no problem living with the ratios? Often they have more Non-import on their roster or starting line-up than what's prescribe by the rules...
