This morning it has come to my attention that in the last few days Jesse “James” Phillips has, once again, been placed on the injured reserve list. At the time of this posting there has been no official statement on the Calgary Roughnecks website.
Phillips was one the injured reserve list at the start of the season only to be taken off for the last few games. It was said that he had been placed on the IR for bumps and bruises. Jesse is a tough defender and while the original assessment of “bumps and bruises” may have been true at the time, it would certainly seem that is not the case now.
I wish Jesse a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him bash some heads when the doctors give him the green light to start playing again.
