Riders head coach Ken Miller basically confirmed after practice today that both Luca Congi and Rob Bagg are done for the season. I asked Miller that with the gruesome injury Luca suffered if his status for the start of next year might be in question. Miller said under the grimmest of circumstances, it could be. Hopefully, Luca will be back and ready to go by June.
Eddie Johnson will handle all the kicking duties and he was making them from almost midfield with plenty to spare during practice today with the wind behind his back. He said after he thinks his range would be about 55 yards. If Eddie were to go down, Ryan Dinwiddie would serve as the backup punter and the backup kicker would be Weston Dressler. Miller saying Dressler would likely only perform things like chip shot field goals and converts.
