Canadian QB Rourke (flu) pushes back NFL workouts
Canadian quarterback Nathan Rourke has pushed his NFL workouts back a week due to illness, TSN's Farhan Lalji reports.
Lalji notes that Rourke got the flu while travelling back from Regina last week.
The 24-year-old Rourke threw for 3,349 yards with 25 touchdowns and 10 interceptions over just 10 games in 2022 after missing half the season with a foot injury. The second-year pivot had a completion percentage of 78.7 per cent which was a CFL record.
Rourke was named the CFL's Most Outstanding Canadian last week after his breakout season.
While Rourke won't be on the field until next week, Lalji adds that Calgary Stampeders offensive lineman Julian Good-Jones worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday.
