The Montreal Alouettes will be without defensive back Ciante Evans for the foreseeable future.

Evans suffered the injury against the Bombers in Montreal’s miracle come back victory. He had some words about Canadian running back Andrew Harris following the win.

The 26-year-old has played in 12 games making 28 tackles and three interceptions so far in 2019. He signed with the Als in May following a stint in the now-defunct Alliance of American Football.

Previously, Evans spent four seasons with the Calgary Stampeders, suiting up in 48 games making 127 tackles, nine interceptions and three forced fumbles. He was a CFL all-star in 2017 and West Division all-star in 2018.

Evans is a high calibre defender who Montreal will have to try and replace.
