REGINA -- After tense weeks of speculation, quarterback Cody Fajardo will start for the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the West Final on Sunday.

Head Coach Craig Dickenson confirmed to reporters on Saturday that Fajardo would be good to go for the Riders first playoff game.

He said Fajardo had a good week of practice and the team is happy with his mobility, adding “If he’s not 100% he’s close.”

Fajardo was forced to miss the Riders’ season finale against the Edmonton Eskimos, and has been recovering for three weeks after injuring his back in practice.

The West Final kicks off at Mosaic Stadium at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday.
