Eskimos have ‘no timetable’ for QB Trevor Harris returning from injury

There is no specific date targeted for a return by Eskimos quarterback Trevor Harris.

“We game him no time frame. We have no timetable. It’s really about him, his body recovering and dealing with the injury that he has,” head coach Jason Maas told 630 Ched radio in Edmonton.

“The moment he can grip a ball and throw it and rip it without any discomfort is the moment he’ll go back to playing again. Ultimately, we’re prepared to go with Logan [Kilgore] as long as Trevor is out.”

The prized off-season acquisition was placed on the six-game injured list last week. He left the Eskimos Week 13 loss against Calgary with an injury to his right throwing arm. Harris travelled with the team to Ottawa and watched Edmonton beat the Redblacks on the sidelines. And he is with the green and gold in Hamilton as the Esks prepare to face the Ticats on Friday night.

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, leaving Ottawa following a contract disagreement with Redblacks general manager Marcel Desjardins.

By placing Harris on the long term injured list it’s a sign the issue could be worse than originally thought and with no timetable Logan Kilgore is the man behind centre for the Eskimos.
