Roughriders' Darian Durant wearing walking boot
QB's injury flared up against Hamilton
Darian Durant is back wearing a walking boot.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders quarterback didn't practise Wednesday, telling reporters afterwards his right foot injury flared up following the club's 37-0 home win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday. Durant said he went back to wearing the boot in an attempt to give his foot added support.
"It kind of swelled up on me a little bit over the past couple of days," Durant said. "We're just being smart about it, being cautious.
"We'll see where we're at (Thursday)."
Durant, 30, injured his foot in a 39-28 road win over the Toronto Argonauts on July 11. He wore the boot early last week but managed to shed it and resume practising later in the week before starting against Hamilton.
Durant showed no signs Sunday of the foot bothering him, completing 20-of-32 passes for 347 yards and four TDs against Hamilton. Durant also ran twice for 18 yards and was named the CFL's offensive player of the week.
