Redblacks put Henry Burris on six-game injured list

Ottawa has placed quarterback Henry Burris on the six-game injured list, according to Redblacks play-by-play man AJ Jakubec.

The 2015 CFL MOP suffered an injured pinky finger on his right throwing hand against Edmonton in the third quarter of Ottawa’s week one victory against Edmonton, a rematch of the 2015 Grey Cup championship game.

Initially, Burris was put on the one-game injured list with the setback, but as Jakubec reports when it became a more long-term issue, Smilin’ Hank was moved to the six-game injured list.

After Burris went out of the game with his injured pinky, Trevor Harris took over quarterbacking duties and led a comeback, overtime win at Commonwealth Stadium. The 30-year-old completed 17 of 19 passes for 292 yards and three touchdowns in less than a half of football. Harris has been named the starter by Redblacks head coach Rick Campbell.
