It was announced today at practice that Crockett would be the starting running-back this week. Crockett started the season on the practice roster, and after releasing WR Ryan Lankford, Crockett was promoted to the active roster. Last week, John Crockett played in his first ever CFL regular season game. He rushed for 62 yards on 8 carries.
With Madu having some trouble in this year’s season, coach Rick Campbell is starting Crockett over Madu in this week’s match up.
The offense has yet to display a big play in this season, and last week against Montreal, Crockett showed some glimpses, and might just be the next best player for the REDBLACKS!
