During last weeks’ game against the Montreal Alouettes, star wideout Kyran Moore left with a knee injury during the second quarter. Yesterday, the Roughriders announced he would miss the rest of 2021.
Moore, who has been with Saskatchewan since 2018, currently leads the team in receptions (64) and receiving yards (585). Through his CFL career, Moore has a total of 174 catches for 2,056 yards and 10 touchdowns. In 2019, he was four yards shy of a 1,000-yard season.
The man most likely to replace Moore is Ricardo Louis, who spent four years in the NFL (2016-2019). The former Auburn University product has 14 catches for 178 yards and 2 touchdowns in his first CFL season.
In addition to Moore’s injury, the Roughriders have said that wide receiver Duke Williams and center Dan Clark are questionable for Friday’s game against the Edmonton Elks. Head coach Craig Dickerson told reporters that Williams has an issue with his hamstring, while Clark is recovering from a rolled ankle.
Saskatchewan has already locked up a playoff spot with their 7-4 record, and although the 2-8 Elks aren’t much of a threat to them, the game could be much closer if Williams and/or Clark are out.
