VANCOUVER, B.C. - British Columbia Lions starting quarterback Casey Printers suffered an apparent leg injury in the final minute of the first half of Saturday's 37-18 loss against the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Printers was taken down by defensive end Brent Hawkins when he was hurt and limped gingerly off the field. Travis Lulay played under center for the second half.

"I could've played but I couldn't risk making it worse. It was a precautionary thing to sit back. It's a long season," Printers said.

Prior to suffering the injury, Printers completed 10-of-14 passes for 120 yards and a touchdown.
