Shoes of Eddie Davis will be hard to fill

Saskatchewan Roughriders halfback Chris McKenzie looks to be the one that will take over from Eddie Davis.  He played a few games last year when Davis went down with injury, so the position isn't new to him.

McKenzie says there's no pressure taking over for a future hall of famer.

"Do I look like I'm pressured (big smile)?  If I can't do it, please get someone in who can.  I'm here to play a sport I love, to play happily and to the best of my ability and just keep on going."

Omarr Morgan, who played beside Davis, says if McKenzie is his new partner, he'll have no problem adjusting.

"McKenzie has a great nose for the football....it's big, but he has a great nose (laughing).  He knows what he's doing out there.  He's having a great training camp and doing exactly what he's supposed to be doing."

Day 7 of training camp goes tomorrow (sat) with a walk- thru before Sunday's pre season game against the B.C. Lions....3pm at MosaicStadium
