TORONTO — Toronto Argonauts head coach Scott Milanovich confirmed today that Canadian slotback Andre Durie will miss the next six weeks with a broken clavicle.

Durie suffered the injury late in Toronto’s Saturday afternoon win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders at Rogers Centre.

The Mississauga, ON. native had hauled in five passes for 77 yards, and tacked on two carries for 18 yards in what was a dominant 48-15 win.

Last season saw Durie post career-best numbers. In 18 games, the eight-year veteran registered 986 yards and three touchdowns on 92 receptions, and collected an additional 107 yards on 16 carries.

In other Argos injury news, the team confirmed on their Twitter account that linebacker Shea Emry suffered a concussion against Saskatchewan. In just two games in his first season with Toronto, Emry has tallied six tackles.
