Update: Eskimos put Canadian LB Adam Konar on six-game injured list

Eskimos head coach Jason Maas said Canuck linebacker Adam Konar sustained a “significant” leg injury on Friday night against in Edmonton’s win against Ottawa.

And that proved to be true as the team has placed the Canadian linebacker on the six-game injured list.

Konar had started three games in place of Canadian Cory Greenwood, who suffered a season-ending ACL injury just days into training camp, at the weakside linebacker position. Fellow Canadian Blair Smith took over to finish the game. National linebacker, former Redblacks fourth round draft pick, Kevin Jackson was signed this week to help bolster the depth at that spot.

That injury adds to a decimated linebacking group for Edmonton with J.C. Sherritt lost for the year in Week 1 to an Achilles setback.

    Like the Stampeders, the Evil empire seems to find ways to win. Linebackers are really cursed in Edmonton this year. Good like to this gentleman on his recovery

  2. Konar has a ton of potential but us really struggling to stay healthy in his pro career so far. Hope this is not season ending.

    A Canadian gets a significant injury replacing a Canadian that has a significant injury.
    We need to reduce the Canadian content ratio

      Oh no not another place where Slim being up the ratio….OMG give it a rest!!

      • I have to agree, the Canadian ratio is not working.

      • He’s right, this is only getting worse. There are so many good players out there that can’t get a chance because they have to start too many Canadians

  4. Sorry for the loss!
