He came up limping in the second quarter, where he did not have any contact on the play, while attempting a pass. He was carted off the field before leaving the stadium on crutches.

The 32-year-old went 13-of-18 for 165 yards before leaving the game. He also had two touchdown passes as well.

He was also limited last year due to injuries as well. He had just 1,792 yards with eight touchdowns and five picks.

To make matters worse, the Roughriders also lost in the game, as the Blue Bombers won 30-26.
