In Friday’s loss, QB Cody Fajardo was taken out of the game late in the first half of the game, with Mason Fine in the back. Fajardo later told the media his confidence was shaken.

Fajardo was taken out as the game was 21-3. Fine drew and the Riders scored a touchdown, but nothing more as the Lions picked up another victory in Regina.

The Riders have eight games left in the season, including one more against British Columbia. Then they will face the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in a back-to-back game on September 4-10.
