The Saskatchewan Roughriders could be without running back Frankie Hickson for the rest of the season after he suffered a fractured wrist, according to 620 CKRM’s Blaine Weyland.

The 25-year-old has started the club’s last four games in place of an injured Jamal Morrow, rushing for 299 yards in those games.

Hickson signed with the Riders in April 2022 following stints with the Los Angeles Rams and The Spring League. He has dressed for 13 games this season and recorded 85 carries for 533 yards and one touchdown, 17 receptions for 109 yards, and seven kickoff returns for 168 yards.

The native of Lynchburg, Va. spent five seasons at Liberty University (2015-19) where he played 47 games as a member of the Flames. He recorded 610 carries for 2,898 yards and 30 touchdowns and finished his collegiate career as the program’s all-time leader in all-purpose yardage with 4,494 yards.

Saskatchewan has two other quarterbacks on the roster in Canadian running back Kienan LaFrance and former NFL ball carrier Shaun Wilson.
