Riders defensive line to miss three starters this week vs. Montreal

The Saskatchewan Roughriders will be without three starting defensive linemen this week when they visit the Montreal Alouettes.

Defensive tackles Micah Johnson and Zack Evans, as well as defensive end A.C. Leonard, are all out of the lineup this week.

Leonard and Evans are both on the six-game injured list, while Johnson is just on the one-game injured list for this week.

Checking into the lineup will be defensive linemen Lavar Edwards and Jeremy Faulk, as well as newly acquired receiver Kenny Stafford and national linebacker Sam Hurl.

Brett Lauther will miss another game at kicker, meaning Gabe Ferraro will get the kicking duties for at least one more week.

The Riders will be in Montreal to face the Alouettes on Friday night, with kick-off at 5:00, pregame coverage beginning at 2:00 on the Cooperators Rider Radio Network.
