Duron Carter’s first CFL season continues to go quite well.
Carter, the former Ohio State wideout and the son of Cris Carter, has shown field-stretching ability as a member of the Montreal Alouettes, and he did it again Friday night, hauling in a 71-yard touchdown pass from Troy Smith in Toronto.
Smith, who recently became the Alouettes’ starter, hit Carter in stride, dropping the pass between the cornerback and the safety. When the safety clipped the corner, taking him out of the play, Carter was gone for his fifth touchdown of the season.
In Montreal’s previous game, Smith and Carter connected on a 63-yard touchdown, with Carter catching about a 20-yard pass and taking it the distance.
Carter entered Friday night with 46 catches and 816 yards. The 22-year-old receiver originally made Montreal’s practice roster in June, then made his way onto the active roster.
