Ottawa Redblacks QB Trevor Harris will be ready to start season: Campbell

The Ottawa Redblacks have dodged a major bullet.

Head coach Rick Campbell said Saturday that quarterback Trevor Harris did not suffer a significant injury when he went down early in the team’s exhibition win over the Montreal Alouettes on Thursday.

Campbell said that Harris will not play this Thursday in the team’s final pre-season game against the Toronto Argonauts in Guelph but should be ready to start the regular season on June 21 at home against the Saskatchewan Roughriders. The Redblacks have bye week one.

The 33-year-old Harris left in the first quarter of Ottawa’s 27-7 win over the Montreal Alouettes on Thursday night. He suffered a lower leg injury, his left knee appearing to buckle after being hit by Alouettes linebacker Chris Ackie.

Harris was in obvious pain afterwards as he limped off the field with the assistance of medical staff. A visibly frustrated Harris went directly to the locker-room.
