Kyran Moore done for season, Duke Williams & Dan Clark may miss game vs. Elks

The Saskatchewan Roughriders will be without star receiver Kyran Moore for the rest of the 2021 season due to a knee injury, according to head coach Craig Dickenson.

Moore was injured in the second quarter of Saturday’s victory over the Montreal Alouettes. He caught one pass for 14 yards before watching the second half from the sidelines on a pair of crutches.

The 25-year-old leads the Riders with 64 receptions for 585 yards and three touchdowns this season and has started all eleven of the team’s games at slotback. Saskatchewan will officially name his replacement on Wednesday, though it appears former NFL receiver Ricardo Louis has the inside track to taking over his starting job.

Dickenson also indicated that slotback Duke Williams and centre Dan Clark are questionable to play against the Edmonton Elks on Friday after leaving practice on Tuesday. Williams is dealing with a hamstring issue, while Clark rolled an ankle.

The second-place Riders (7-4) currently hold a two-point lead in the West Division over the third-place Calgary Stampeders (6-6) with a game in hand. Calgary holds the tiebreaker between the two clubs by virtue of their 2-1 head-to-head record.

The Stamps are currently on a bye week and will return to finish their season with games against the B.C. Lions (4-7) and Winnipeg Blue Bombers (10-1), while Saskatchewan finishes their campaign with back-to-back games with the Edmonton Elks (2-8) and a game against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (6-5).
