A future hall of fame player has left tonight’s game with an apparent head injury.

John Bowman collided with teammate Ryan Brown in the third quarter at Tim Hortons Field while applying pressure to Jeremiah Masoli. Brown’s shoulder made contact with Bowman’s helmet, causing the long-time Alouette some obvious discomfort.

Bowman left the field under his own power after being tended to by the club’s training staff.

The 36-year-old is Montreal’s top pass rusher, recording 126 career sacks in 14 years with the club.

Bowman returned to the game late in the fourth quarter with the team announcing that he is “fine.”
