Edmonton Eskimos starting quarterback Trevor Harris has been activated off the six-game injured list and is likely to start against Saskatchewan this week.

Harris went down in Week 13 after suffering an injured forearm against Calgary and was replaced by Logan Kilgore, who managed to a 2-2 record in relief.

Harris was an M.O.P favourite before his injury, having passed for 3,706 yards, 15 touchdowns and just four interception in his 12 healthy start.

Harris’ return will make Saskatchewan’s road to a home playoff game that much more difficult and could shake up the Grey Cup race as Edmonton heads to Montreal in the crossover.
