Edmonton quarterback Trevor Harris did not practice for a second straight day.

He was on the field but did not participate. Harris left the Eskimos Week 13 loss against Calgary with an injury to his right throwing arm and even after a bye week has yet to throw a football during a green and gold session.

“We’re still evaluating. He didn’t practice today, that’s all I’ll say,” head coach Jason Maas said.

The Eskimos signal caller completed 3-of-5 passes for nine yards and one touchdown to Tevaun Smith versus the Stampeders. Backup QB Logan Kilgore ran the offence for the rest of the game which Edmonton lost 33-17. Harris’ status for Week 15 when the Hamilton Ticats come to Commonwealth Stadium remains uncertain.

“He’s still got to see the doctor [Tuesday] and we’ll make a decision from there,” Maas said.

Harris leads the league in passing yards with 3,706 to go along with a sparkling 15-4 touchdown to interception ratio in his first season as an Eskimo. The 33-year-old signed a two-year contract worth $1.1 million with Edmonton during free agency.
