REGINA - The Saskatchewan Roughriders added running back Will Ford to their practice roster Tuesday.

The five-foot-11, 195-pound Ford spent the last two seasons with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Ford was an East Division all-star in 2013 after rushing for 594 yards and two touchdowns while adding seven catches for 41 yards in 13 regular-season games.

Ford, 27, also registered 45 kickoff returns for 1,047 yards and two TDs and was twice named the league's special-teams player of the week.

Ford was released by the Bombers earlier this season without appearing in a game.

Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version stated that Ford had appeared in a game with Winnipeg this season.
