Ottawa Redblacks quarterback Trevor Harris left the team’s first pre-season with a possible lower body injury and did not return.
Montreal Alouettes safety Chris Ackie came on a blitz and fell into Harris’ left leg just after he released the ball and it was intercepted. The 33-year-old was writhing in pain on the field and eventually limped off to the Redblacks locker room. Clearly struggling to put any weight on his left leg.
