Drew Willy or Darian Durant?
You might not know until the first snap of the football on Sunday morning.
That's after head coach Corey Chamblin said Durant could end up as a game-time decision. Number 4 suffered an apparent strained hip flexor early in last Sunday's 25-24 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
The head coach is asked to weigh Durant's health for this one game, versus keeping him healthy for the rest of the season, "It is football, and sometimes you have to play through some things. If he's able to play through it, and the medical staff thinks he can then we'll go that route. If it's something they think will become worse, or if [Darian] thinks it will, then of course I won't do that."
Chamblin adds that he's hoping Durant can take at least a few reps during Friday's practice if he is going to play this week.
Durant, meanwhile, was asked for his take on rookie Drew Willy's performance in that come-from-behind win last Sunday, "Drew did what he had to do to get the 'W'. That's what it's all about. For him to be a rookie, and thrown into a hostile environment such as the Banjo Bowl, I think he did a good job. He didn't hurt us too much, and he put us in a position to win at the end of the game. That's all you can ask for."
And Weston Dressler says he's got a few bumps and bruises but expects to start in Montreal this week.
That game on Sunday is another 11 A-M start -- our pre-game on AM-600 CJWW kicks off at 9:30 a.m.
