Former NFL quarterback Vince Young, who signed with the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders earlier this year, will miss the start of the 2017 season after tearing his hamstring, coach Chris Jones told reporters Monday.
Jones told reporters that Young is expected to miss four to six weeks with the injury. The Roughriders open their season June 22.
Young signed a two-year contract with a second-year option with the Roughriders in March.
