RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bridge completed 21 of 31 passes for 231 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Friday's 27-19 win over the Tiger-Cats. He also rushed twice for seven yards.

Bridge drew the start for the ailing Kevin Glenn (hand) and acquitted himself well, firing scoring throws to Devon Bailey, Naaman Roosevelt and Bakari Grant. The 25-year-old Canadian national threw multiple touchdowns for the second time this season, as he'd also tallied a pair in mop-up duty against the Lions in Week 7. Glenn's status for Week 14 against the Stamps is unknown, but given that he was a game-time decision Friday, it would appear likely he'll be ready for the showdown. However, if he's unable to go, Bridge certainly provided plenty of reason for optimism with Friday's effort.

Bridge is on track to start Friday's game against the Tiger-Cats, according to Taylor Shire of Global Regina.

Bridge replaced an injured Kevin Glenn (hand) in last week's contest; and even though Glenn has been able to practice a bit this week, it does not appear he will be healthy enough to take the field in Week 13. Bridge has not started a game this season, but if he does indeed wind up under center this week, he will square off against a Hamilton squad that ranks last in the league in team defense.

Bridge replaced an injured Kevin Glenn (hand) in the third quarter of Saturday's 48-28 loss to the Blue Bombers, completing four of eight passes for 67 yards and an interception while also running in a 10-yard touchdown.

There's no word yet on the severity of Glenn's injury, but it is to his throwing hand. If the veteran is forced to miss any additional time, Bridge would most likely replace him in the starting lineup, and while having a 25-year-old Canadian under center would create some vital roster flexibility for the Riders, his limited resume (50-for-73 for 648 yards and a 5:2 TD:INT in two-plus CFL seasons) makes Bridge's potential on-field impact something of a mystery.

Bridge completed all six of his pass attempts for 114 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 30-15 loss to the Riders. He also completed a two-point conversion pass.

Bridge saw some game action for the third time this season and made it count, firing a 46-yard touchdown to Duron Carter and a 45-yard score to Naaman Roosevelt for the Riders' only two touchdowns on the night. The 25-year-old signal caller certainly holds some promise as a developmental project behind veteran Kevin Glenn, but the latter continues as the team's unquestioned starter in what has mostly been a resurgent season to date.

Bridge completed 10 of 11 passes for 120 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Saturday's 41-18 loss to the Lions. He also gained 16 yards and scored a touchdown on his one rush.

After only logging two pass attempts this season prior to Saturday, the 24-year-old third-string quarterback finally got a chance for some extended game action in 2016, rotating in with starter Mitchell Gale on the evening. Bridge scored a fourth-quarter rushing touchdown long after the game was out of reach and was sharp through the air, misfiring on only one pass. While veteran Darian Durant is expected to continue his career next season, Bridge's strong performance could certainly give the Roughriders coaching staff something to think about regarding the backup role in 2017.

Bridge signed a deal with the Roughriders on Wednesday, Didier Ormejuste of RDS reports.

Bridge was recently released by the Alouettes. He was the the third-string quarterback, and appeared in four games, but had no pass attempts this season. He will likely find himself in a similar role with the Roughriders behind Darian Durant and Mitchell Gale.

Bridge was released by Montreal on Monday, Herb Zurkowsky of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Bridge was listed as the third option on the team's quarterback depth chart behind Kevin Glenn and Rakeem Cato, so he played a small role during his time in Montreal. At just 24 years old, Bridge may potentially have an opportunity with another squad in the future.
