Darian Durant's status up in air

Darian Durant's status appears to be less clear than what we were told on Monday.

At the time, head coach Corey Chamblin was pretty confident that Durant would be playing Sunday in Montreal, after practice on Wednesday, Durant wasn't quite so confident.

"Right now it's about 50-50," said Durant. " Still some swelling there, still a lot of tenderness."

Chamblin also told reporters after practice that a decision will be made later in the week, or even at game time, on if Durant will start or not.

Saskatchewan's premier Brad Wall still most popular in Canada

Some premiers in Canada would likely love to have the approval rating Saskatchewan's Brad Wall has.
