Elks pull Trevor Harris in favour of Taylor Cornelius

After a two game absence due to injury, Trevor Harris’ return to the Elks lineup has been less than triumphant, as the starting quarterback has been pulled from the game in favour of backup Taylor Cornelius early in the fourth quarter.

Harris finished the game 9-of-22 for 87 yards, heading to the bench with his team down 17-3.

The 35-year old passer missed two-games with a neck injury suffered in Week 6 against Calgary. XFL starter Taylor Cornelius took over in the interim, throwing for 577 yards, three touchdowns and five interceptions, and was turned to again after Harris’ dreadful return.

Harris has started five games this season, leading the Elks to a 2-3 record. He has completed 74.1 percent for 1,481 yards, six touchdowns, and five interceptions.

The six-foot-three, 215-pound passer has thrown for 23,663 yards, 126 touchdowns, and 57 interceptions over nine CFL seasons with Toronto, Ottawa, and Edmonton.
