Head coach Jaime Elizondo addressed the media on Friday afternoon regarding the teams’ gameday roster upon the CFL’s roster deadline. Elizondo noted he’s been extremely happy with the progress of the team. Due to not having the normal means of assessing players with the lack of preseason games and scrimmages, he mentioned there will be constant adjustments over the first few weeks of the season. He also noted how pleased he’s been with inside linebackers Nyles Morgan and Keishawn Bierria, praising how well they play off of each other, their excellent football intelligence, great communication, and incredible effort.
