Status of injured Darian Durant still up in air
Drew Willy had his moments in Montreal, but if it wasn't before, it's painfully clear now that he isn't ready to be a starting quarterback. No matter how bright his future might be.
So now the question is, what is the status of number one pivot Darian Durant?
"Darian, he told (us) he's about 80-85 (per cent) before the game," said head coach Corey Chamblin. "It's one of those things where he is after a couple of days rest."
You would think if Durant is over 80 per cent that he would likely return to practice and likely the starting line up Sunday against Calgary. Chamblin did tell us on Monday that he hopes Durant would be able to practice on Wednesday, but we have heard these goals for Durant all last week, with little action.
"He should be that much stronger in his body," said Chamblin. "We'll see how he needs to progress this week."
It's not to say that Willy didn't play well, he certainly made some plays, and put up some pretty good numbers. As Willy did finish the game with a better completion percentage than Anthony Calvillo , though Calvillo wasn't helped by his receivers who dropped dropped a number of passes.
"He showed a little youth early," said Chamblin. "But toward the end of the game, I thought he did a pretty good job."
One thing Chamblin did say about Willy's game is he thought that Willy was trying to be too perfect at times. He added that Willy also needs to get better at his reads.
"Drew did a good job with what he had," said Chamblin. "There was a couple of mis-reads he had, it's what he can see and what he can do."
The good news is, other than Durant the team doesn't have any major injury concerns coming into this week.
