The Saskatchewan Roughriders have listed star receiver Duke Williams as questionable for Friday’s game against the Ottawa Redblacks due to a hip injury.

The 29-year-old missed the club’s game against Edmonton in Week 2 due to an ankle injury and was out for a portion of Saskatchewan’s win over the Montreal Alouettes in Week 4 due to injury as well.

Williams has caught nine passes this season for 159 yards and one touchdown with a long of 45 yards. He did not make a catch last week despite being targeted five times by franchise quarterback Cody Fajardo.

The Riders also listed left tackle Terran Vaughn (shoulder), boundary cornerback Nick Marshall (knee), and kicker Brett Lauther (hand) as questionable, while running back Kienan LaFrance (knee) and receiver Jake Harty (shoulder) were ruled out.

Saskatchewan (3-1) is scheduled to host the Ottawa Redblacks (0-3) at Mosaic Stadium on Friday night at 9:30 p.m. ET. The Riders won the only meeting between the two teams last season in a 23-10 victory on August 21.
