Drew Willy will get his first CFL start on Sunday, replacing the injured Darian Durant for the Saskatchewan Roughriders against the Montreal Alouettes.

Durant was questionable all week with a sore hip, but he did not touch the ball in walkthrough, and said head coach Corey Chamblin will not allow him to start if he is not pain-free.

Willy, a University of Buffalo product, has come off the bench in each of the Roughriders' last two games, both wins over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

The 25-year-old was particularly impressive last week, going 17-23 for 188 yards and a touchdown, while also leading Saskatchewan on the game-winning drive that ended with a 40-yard Sandro DeAngelis field goal kick as time expired.
