Jovon Johnson stands up for Riders teammate Duron Carter

Defensive back Jovon Johnson came to the defence of Duron Carter on Twitter following an incident at Riders practice on Monday.

There was a fight that took place between Carter and rookie linebacker Sam Williams.

Even though Carter was summoned by a member of the staff, Johnson was insistent that it wasn’t out of the ordinary.

Saskatchewan blew a 12-point lead with just over six minutes left on the clock in a loss to Ottawa during Week 17 action.

Johnson seems like a good teammate, especially when you consider he’s defending one with a checkered reputation.
