MURPHY: DURANT PLAYING TIME T.B.D.
Saskatchewan Roughriders Assistant V.P. of Player Personnel John Murphy fielded a variety of questions on 620 CKRM's SportsCage on Thursday on Day 19 of training camp. With Thursday's workout cancelled due to pouring rains, we weren't able to ask GM & Head Coach Chris Jones how much star quarterback Darian Durant will play in Saturday's preseason game at Edmonton. Murphy said that's yet to be determined.
"I think that's going to be more of a vibe or a feeling between Chris, Darian and Coach McAdoo," Murphy offered. "He's not on a 'pitch count' type of thing. But at the same time there's more of a necessity to let them all play together for a certain amount of time. Whether that's a couple of series or a quarter, that's more of an internal discussion of we'll know 'when is when' based on how everybody's feeling."

The Riders visit the Eskimos at 2:00 pm Saturday and the only broadcasts of the game are on the 620 CKRM Roughriders Radio Network and 630 CHED in Edmonton.
