Gardner in Argo’s camp

From the Guelph Mercury:

Jedd Gardner is set for his first taste of Canadian Football League game action Saturday as the Toronto Argonauts host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in their pre-season opener.

“My expectations of myself are going out there, playing full speed, playing hard, playing physical, not busting my assignments and making the play when the ball comes my way,” Gardner said after Thursday’s workouts at the Argos’ training camp at the University of Toronto’s Mississauga campus.

A receiver, Gardner said he will probably see the field Saturday for about a quarter of the game as there are a lot of players who the coaches want to give a look.

A four-year member of the Guelph Gryphons, who would still be eligible to play another year at the university level, Gardner is attending his first professional training camp since being selected in May in the fourth round, 28th overall, by the Argos in the CFL’s Canadian draft.

Update: I couldn’t find any stats for CFL preseason games but I got this response to an inquiry from Argo’s communications assistant Chris Rossetti –  Jedd didn’t record any stats, but he played well on kickoff coverage, often being the first one down the field, and broke up the wedge once. He only had one ball thrown his way on a deep fly route. It was just overthrown from BJ Hall in the fourth quarter.
