BC Lions QB phenom Nathan Rourke has thrown 248 completions out of 313 attempts so far this season for a Pass Completion Percentage of 79.23% which would be an all-time CFL record if he'd thrown at least 250 completions... which is ONLY two more than he's already completed.
Highest Pass Completion Percentage, one season (minimum 250 attempts)
It might be painful, but Nathan Rourke will likely be cleared to play (especially with painkillers) in time to appear in the last game of THIS season if he wants to give it a try. My question is... should he?
No. It's not worth the risk.
If he feels up to it... Yes. Go for it.
Let it be a game time decision made by all concerned.
The B.C. Lions are optimistic that star quarterback Nathan Rourke will return from injury when expected, if not sooner, Lions co-general manager Neil McEvoy told CHEK’s Don Taylor and Rick Dhaliwal on Tuesday.
“Nathan, this weekend, was throwing,” McEvoy told Taylor and Dhaliwal on Donnie and Dhali. “It’s to the point now we might have to reign him back a little bit just because you don’t want him to get hurt or re-injured.
From talking to Nathan, he believes he is going to be on-time, if not better.”
He is expected to return to the lineup late in the regular season.
Getting a little ahead of yourself Maaax, but ''holding out hope'' is reason to be optimistic. Personally, I think he shouldn't come back if there's the least chance of a setback. As a side note it's now a virtual lock for Rourke to win the CFL Top Performers honour. Not too shabby for half a season.
