The Saskatchewan Roughriders will have slotback Duke Williams in the lineup when they take on the Edmonton Elks on Friday night. Williams was limited in practice this week due to a hamstring injury and was listed as questionable to play in Edmonton.

The former CFL all-star signed with the Riders in early October following his two-year stint with the Buffalo Bills. He started Saskatchewan’s past two games — both of which they’ve won — recording six receptions for 77 yards.

Head coach Craig Dickenson indicated this week that slotback Kyran Moore will miss the rest of the season due to a knee injury, which brought former fourth-round NFL draft pick Ricardo Louis back into the lineup.

The Riders (7-4) are looking to close out their season ahead of the Calgary Stampeders (6-6) and secure second place in the West Division. A victory over Edmonton would allow Saskatchewan to expand their lead over Calgary from two points to four, though the Stamps hold the tiebreaker between the two teams by virtue of their 2-1 head-to-head record.
