The Montreal Alouettes will be without a star Canadian player for the rest of the year.

Taylor Loffler has suffered a torn ACL in his left knee, ending his season. The 27-year-old safety signed with Montreal as a free agent this off-season and recorded 27 tackles, one interception, and one forced fumble in six games.

Loffler suffered the injury late in Saturday’s comeback victory over the Calgary Stampeders.

The three-time league all-star suffered two separate ACL injuries before starting his CFL career with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2016.
