Riders lose Darian Durant to injury

By The Canadian Press

VANCOUVER - Saskatchewan Roughriders quarterback Darian Durant was sidelined with an apparent finger injury Sunday against the B.C. Lions.

Durant left the game after completing nine of 15 passes for 104 yards in the first half, after which the Riders trailed 13-9. The starting quarterback watched the rest of the game in uniform from the sidelines while sporting a brace on his right throwing hand.

Durant was replaced by backup Tino Sunseri, a 29-year-old Pittsburgh native who is in his second season with the Riders. Sunseri threw his first career CFL touchdown pass on a one-yard toss to Dan Clark, who is usually an offensive lineman but lined up as an eligible receiver at tight end on the final play of the third quarter.

The TD staked the Riders to their first lead of the game, at 19-13.
