The Big piece of good news coming out of Canada is that Naaman Roosevelt’s knee looks like it’s all healed up after last years injury.
Naaman Roosevelt has eased concerns about the strength of his surgically repaired right knee during training camp. In 2016, Roosevelt was the Riders’ leader in receiving in yards (1,095) and catches (76) and had two touchdown receptions before suffering a season-ending knee injury during the 11th regular-season game. Roosevelt rehabbed the injury during the off-season and doesn’t appear to have lost any of his speed or elusiveness. On Wednesday, Roosevelt launched himself to catch a sideline pass from Glenn. The veteran receiver has been among all of the quarterbacks’ favourite targets and he rewards their confidence by making the tough catches. — Leader Post
