Kienan LaFrance will handled running back duties for the Riders in Marshall’s absence, while Duron Carter took on the

Marshall, a free agent signing by the Riders after a brief stint in the NFL, was enjoying a solid return north of the border in 2017, totaling 489 rushing yards and 278 receiving yards. He had 55 rushing yards and a touchdown on Sunday before his second-quarter exit.
Demski, a former first round pick now in his third CFL season, has factored into the Riders’ return game throughout the year and on Sunday, his first-half punt return deep into Bomber territory set up an early Saskatchewan touchdown.
No word yet on either player’s availability for the rematch in next weekend’s annual Banjo Bowl.
