Alouettes’ head coach Jacques Chapdelaine ‘cautiously optimistic’ after Darian Durant injury

Montreal Alouettes quarterback Darian Durant suffered what appeared to be an injury to his knee at practice on Tuesday.

Head coach Jacques Chapdelaine offered an update after the session was over.

Durant signed a three-year deal with Alouettes shortly after his rights were traded to Montreal by the Saskatchewan Roughriders in January.

Durant appeared in 157 career regular-season games with the Riders, earning Grey Cup rings in 2007 and 2013. The first came as a backup but Durant was a key figure in leading Saskatchewan to its convincing 45-23 win over Hamilton at Mosaic Stadium for his second.

Durant amassed a 58-54-1 record in 113 career regular-season starts and stands second in club history in pass attempts (3,519), completions (2,186) and yards (28,136) and third in TD strikes (149).
