Redblacks QB Trevor Harris added to six-game injured list

The Ottawa Redblacks will add quarterback Trevor Harris to the six-game injury list after he suffered a right shoulder sprain over the weekend.

General manager Marcel Desjardins says it’s too early to say when Harris might be able to return, but he doesn’t think he’ll miss the rest of the season.

Harris suffered a second-degree sprain in a 26-22 loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Saturday night. He took a big hit from Ticats defensive lineman Davon Coleman that forced him from the game.

Harris entered the game against Hamilton leading the CFL in passing yards (3,531), (435) attempts, (309) completions and 22 touchdown passes. He also topped the league with seven fumbles before Week 12 action.

The Redblacks plan to give veteran pivot Drew Tate the start this Sunday in Montreal.

It will be his first start in three years.

Ottawa leads the East Division standings with a 4-7-1 record.
