Maybe but it wasn't the option taken last week when Hardrick went down. Besides " in a pinch " is not a long term plan when you start 2 import OL measured against long term development time for new OL.

Neufeld is playing well at LG. For an in game injury sure but if we lost either import OT's we're thin. We don't have as good a Canadian OT as we do with the imports. Hence IMO we should have had one on the PR.
I agree, unless Hardick is only out a week, then it's really a non-issue.

That's not exactly the point. OL go down across the CFL and are lost for the season. We've been lucky and haven't had many OL injuries over the past few seasons.

I'm just saying with two starting import OL it would have been wise to have greater PR depth.

Learning curve for DB's is shorter but we have 2 and sometimes 3 on the PR of IR rosters.

That would be what ADD FROM INJURED would mean...   he's now on the 46... doesn't mean he dresses, especially with Foketi dressing...

Eliminates activating a player from the PR to the AR 46. So a bit of a cost savings and still gives the opportunity for Dressler to play although probably not. At least according to O'Shea suggesting gone for two games.

Do you have to have 46 on the 46 man?  If you're not going to dress them anyway...  no need to give a PR guy a game check and contract if you don't need to...

Yes need 46 players on the AR to the best of my knowledge. So potentially having a slightly injured player on the DR saves some SMS as opposed to adding a PR player and extra cost.

In that sense it makes sense. OTOH if Dressler is on the DR and absolutely can't play, what happens if Adams twists and ankle in warm ups? Then we're starting 3 Canadian receivers.

Yeah the CFLPA would file a grievance faster than a speeding bullet if the roster wasn't filled

What does Foketi have to do with Dressler?

Kind of a silly question.

It makes sense to have a slightly injured player on the 46 to save cap but only if you are confident that you have the depth available at their position from the rest of the roster.

Didn't SSK run with a 45 man roster and a 43 man AR roster due to a clerical error recently?

No...they just had an injured guy on the active roster. Their 46 was full.
