It was the injury update Saskatchewan Roughriders fans wanted to here.
Roughriders head coach Corey Chamblin said Friday during the team’s Florida mini-camp quarterback Darian Durant is past the rehab stage.
“Darian’s going to be pretty heavy on reps,? Chamblin said. “It’s not going to be guarded unless there’s fatigue for some other reason. He’s past the rehab state for me.?
Chamblin added that he didn’t feel it was necessary to check in on his health after practice and only asked how the veteran quarterback was with the new coaching and new system.
Videos taken by Saskatchewan radio stations 620 CKRM and 980 CJME show Durant throwing in individual drills and reports on Saturday suggested he looked like his old self.
Durant suffered a season-ending elbow injury in early September last year. Updates on the 32-year-old’s status have been scarce throughout the off-season until this weekend’s mini-camp.
Sounds like he is getting back to forum nicely. Hopefully he isn't pushing himself too hard and have a set back. Were going to need him in 2013 forum to have a shot. Hope him and Chappy are on the same page and the offense clicks this year.
Changing topic but any word on Sheets?
Sheets is not ready yet. Put it this way...he is living close to mini camp and was not there.
Is Sheets even on their radar?
They've been talking. I would say he won't be ready and will hope to hop onto an NFL club for a tryout. I would thing that within the next month there will be a better idea of where it is heading because he would probably be gettign workouts by NFL club the first week of May or not at all.
