In just the past few weeks combined, there have been multiple injuries that have hurt this Redblacks team to win games, but this week they hope to change the sequence!

A little update from Tim Baines of the Ottawa Sun Sports media telling his readers who may and may not play this Saturday

In the tweet attached to this article, you will see Tim Baines mentioning that the Ottawa Redblacks will be missing Caleb Holley this week along with a possible Jerod Fernandez injury which could sideline him this week.

With Holley’s absence to the Ottawa Redblacks offense, you will be seeing wide receiver Jerminic Smith take the field.

Smith played two seasons with the Iowa Hawkeyes before transferring to South Baptist University. At Iowa, Smith caught 29 passes reeling them in for 455 yards and two touchdowns.

Along with the injury problems in Ottawa, the Redblacks have also signed three players to the practice squad.


  • Signed American Quarterback, Bryan Schor, James Madison University
  • Signed American Receiver, Jaelan Austin, Texas Christian University
  • Signed American Linebacker, Nick McBeath, Holy Cross
