Redblacks place Canadians Antoine Pruneau and Nolan McMillan on six-game injured list

The Ottawa Redblacks have placed standout Canadian defensive back Antoine Pruneau and national offensive lineman Nolan McMillan on the six-game injured list.

Pruneau has made 50 tackles, six on special teams, one interception and forced one fumble in 13 games for Ottawa in 2018. He was an East All-Star in 2017. The 28-year-old is a reliable starter in the secondary on defence for the Redblacks. Third-year non-import Jean-Philippe Bolduc takes over at safety for Pruneau.

McMillan has played in nine games for Ottawa this season. He’s one of the most talented Canadians up front in the league when healthy. John Gott jumps into the right guard spot.
