Football: Rams hope backup is Kappel-able

The Regina Leader-Post is reporting that Regina tailback Luke Derkson will miss Friday's must-win game vs. Manitoba.

The Bisons allow the fewest yards per carry in Canada West (Saskatchewan has allowed the fewest yards). Generally, having to go to the No. 2 running back is not the end of the world compared, say, losing a quarterback, starting offensive lineman or your best one-on-one cover guy on defence. Austin Kappel (don't know a lot about him, sorry) rushed 21 times for 115 yards last week vs. Alberta.

Most of you probably don't need prompting to make Tim Switzer's Campus Chatter a regular stop ... it is gratifying to see more papers having their high school/university reporter have another outlet (especially if you got laughed at for suggesting it in your own newsroom almost two years ago, when no one had one).
