Sutton (ribs) has been placed on the six-game injured list and will not play Saturday against the Stampeders.

Sutton will miss a second straight game due to the rib injury he is dealing with. It remains to be seen when he will return to action, but Brandon Rutley will work as the starting running back in his absence.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sutton (ribs) will not play Monday against Edmonton, Didier Ormejuste of RDS reports.

The running back was forced from the fourth quarter during Sunday's game due to his rib injury, and it has remained an issue for Sutton as he's been unable to participate in practice and will miss more game time Monday. Brandon Rutley will replace Sutton as starting running back.

Sutton will not practice Thursday due to an undisclosed injury, Herb Zurkowsky of the Montreal Gazette reports.

It's not clear what type of setback Sutton is dealing with, but the injury forced him from Sunday's game in the fourth quarter, and it apparently remains an issue. Fellow running back Brandon Rutley landed on the six-game injured list last week with an injury of an own, leaving Stefan Logan as the only healthy running back on the roster heading into Week 16.

October 3, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sutton carried the ball 10 times for a season-high 83 yards in Sunday's win over the Argos.

He also caught two passes for zero yards. Sutton has now topped 70 rushing yards in three of the last four games, and should continue to see enough touches to remain productive for the Alouettes down the stretch.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sutton carried the ball 11 times for 71 yards while adding five catches for 44 yards in Friday's loss to the Tiger-Cats.

He was the only member of the Alouettes' offense to have much success Friday, as their only touchdown came on a blocked punt. Despite playing in just six games so far this year, Sutton still sits seventh in the CFL in rushing yards with 329.

September 10, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sutton carried the ball 11 times for 52 yards while catching three passes for 35 yards in Friday's loss to the Lions.

In three games since returning from his knee injury, Sutton now has a modest 156 rushing yards and 103 receiving yards and has yet to get into the end zone. His starting job wouldn't seem to be in any danger but with the Alouettes' offense in flux right now, his fantasy ceiling could remain limited.

September 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sutton totaled 71 yards on 10 rushes and added three yards on his only catch in Thursday's 19-14 loss to the Redblacks.

The 29-year-old received double-digit carries for the third time in the four games he's participated in this season, while also setting a season high in rushing yards. Sutton's success on the ground was in direct contrast with his Week 10 line, when he totaled a season-high 65 yards through the air. Regardless of whether it's on the ground or the passing game, Sutton is undeniably a vital cog in the Als' offensive machine on a weekly basis.

Sutton returned to the starting lineup for the first time since Week 2 in Friday's 32-18 loss to the Blue Bombers, gaining 33 yards on 10 carries and totaling 65 yards on seven receptions.

The veteran running back looked to be recovered from the knee injury that had kept him sidelined since June 30, but couldn't find much running room against a stingy Winnipeg run defense. However, he made meaningful contributions through the air, tallying season highs in both receptions and yards. He did see backup QB Vernon Adams, Jr. vulture a rushing touchdown opportunity, leaving Sutton still in search of his first visit to the end zone of 2016. The 29-year-old will look to break the ice when the Als take on the Redblacks in Week 11.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sutton (knee) is listed as the Alouettes' starting running back for Friday's game against the Blue Bombers.

Sutton returned to practice earlier this week after recovering from a knee injury, and the Alouettes' depth chart confirms that he will start Friday for the first time since Week 2. Sutton faced the Blue Bombers in Week 1 in his only full game of the season and racked up 105 total yards on 19 touches.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sutton (knee) is expected to return to action this week against the Blue Bombers, the Montreal Gazette reports.

Sutton has been sidelined since injuring his knee in Week 2, but he practiced with the first team at Monday's practice, setting the stage for him to get back on the field this Friday. He tallied 19 touches and 105 total yards in his lone full game this season as the primary running back, a role he figures to fill for the Alouettes moving forward.

July 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sutton was placed on the 6-game injured list with an MCL (knee) injury, AJ Jakubec of TSN 1200 reports.

Sutton produced 39 yards on eight carries in Thursday's loss to the Redblacks, good for 4.9 yards per tote. He also generated 20 yards through the air. Given the productive evening, it's not clear exactly when Sutton sustained the injury. At any rate, Montreal's depth will be tested with wide receiver SJ Green out for the season with a knee injury of his own, and running back Wayne Moore on the 6-game injured list due to a separated shoulder. The silver lining for the Alouettes is that they don't take the field again until July 15, a home game against Hamilton.

June 30, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sutton gained 39 yards on eight carries and added another 20 yards on five catches in Thursday's 28-13 loss to the Redblacks.

The 2015 CFL rushing leader didn't enjoy as productive a day as he had in the opener, when he'd tallied 105 yards combined through the ground and air. Sutton was certainly serviceable enough in the opportunities he did receive, but with Montreal falling behind by a significant margin, he was unable to approach the 15 carries he'd been afforded in Week 1. If receivers S.J. Green (leg) and Duron Carter (potential suspension) can't take the field in Week 4 against the Tigercats, Sutton could play a much more pivotal role in the offensive gameplan.

June 25, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sutton ran the ball 15 times for 66 yards while catching four passes for 39 yards in Friday's 22-14 win over the Blue Bombers.

It was a strong start to the season for Sutton, who emerged as a star in 2015 with a CFL-leading 1059 rushing yards plus 334 receiving yards. The Alouettes' offense should be better through the air this year with Kevin Glenn under center, but Sutton still figures to be one of their primary weapons.

June 18, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Sutton ran the ball six times for a team-high 32 yards in Friday's preseason win over the Argos.

Last year's CFL rushing champ looks ready to pick up where he left off in 2015. The Alouettes brought in veteran quarterback Kevin Glenn late last season to help stabilize what had been one of the worst passing offenses in the league, but they still figure to lean heavily on Sutton to move the chains in 2016.
