Jonathan Jennings named starter for Friday’s game

With the REDBLACKS on a 2 game losing streak, the club has announced that Jennings would start in Winnipeg this Friday. Winnipeg is 4-0 and will be a challenge for the new comer.

On Monday, Rick Campbell was on TSN 1200, and stated that Davis would be their guy if healthy. This must mean Dominique is not healthy enough to start in Winnipeg this Friday.

Jennings is in his 5th season in the CFL, spending 4 in BC, where he’d start 44 games and throw for over 12,000 yards.

In 2016, Jennings started 18 of 18 games, and threw for 5,226 yards and 27 touchdowns while using his legs for 363 yards and 4 touchdowns. In the 2016 season, he and the Lions lost in the West Final, ending the season with a 12-6 record.

With Jennings starting this week’s game, it could mean change to the REDBLACKS offense. The REDBLACKS are 2-2, and currently losing the turnover battle. The team hasn’t been able to make plays when plays are needed, so if Jennings can make plays he might be in longer than expected.
