REGINA Rob Bagg has decided to go under the knife again. Pat Angerer Womens Jersey . The Saskatchewan
Roughriders receiver will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a torn
anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. “A lot of things went into the
decision,” said Bagg. “The fact if you play on a knee that doesnt have an ACL,
you can cause further damage. “While Im not the youngest (player), I still feel
that Im fairly young and that I have some football ahead of me.” The 27-year-old
native of Kingston, Ont., missed all of last season after undergoing two
operations for a torn ACL in his right knee. Bagg injured his left knee in the
first quarter of Saskatchewans 17-1 home win over the Edmonton Eskimos on July
8. Originally, Bagg believed he had suffered a hamstring injury until further
examination revealed the true extent of the ailment. Bagg had six catches for 69
yards in his three appearances this season, his fifth with the Riders. “Its
extremely frustrating and Im obviously very disappointed,” Bagg said. “Ive done
my moping and there isnt anything left I can do but move forward.” Baggs enjoyed
his best CFL season in 2009 when he had 59 catches for 807 yards and five TDs.
He was on pace to surpass his receptions and yardage marks in 2010, registering
44 catches for 688 yards and three TDs in 15 games before sustaining his first
right knee injury. Despite his latest setback, Bagg said retirement was never an
option. “Its a little bit depressing knowing how much work is required,” said
Bagg. “While there is a lot of work to be done, I know that I can do it. “I feel
that I havent accomplished what I feel I can in this game and Im just not ready
to stop.” Riders head coach Corey Chamblin expects the six-foot, 192-pound Bagg
back with the CFL club next season. “Anything is possible with him and its not a
career-ending injury,” Chamblin said. “Hes the type of guy who can work through
things. “Im fairly positive he could make it back next year.”
