Andrew Harris returns to the field this week from a two-game PED suspension, a punishment not harsh enough according to one of his opponents on Saturday, Montreal’s veteran defensive end John Bowman.
John Bowman on facing Andrew Harris who will play after serving a suspension for failing a PED test: “Hopefully he’s cycled off, he’s clean and we can tackle him. Any cheater deserves to get what they get. If it was up to me he would get suspended longer.” #Alouettes @CFL

The 37-year old, 14-year starter for the Alouettes did not mince words in condemning the league’s leading rusher for his failed test. It comes on the heels of Montreal quarterback Vernon Adams stating that William Stanback was the league’s top runner, not Harris.
The comments should lead to some friction between the two future Hall of Famers when they take the field at Percival Molson Stadium on Saturday. Harris has been adamant that the failed test was as a result of a tainted supplement, not intentional steroid use, and the shot from Bowman will do nothing to calm his angry return.
As for the quotes coming out of the Alouettes’ locker room today, lets just say they are a little inflammatory.
