Star Canadian running back Andrew Harris will not return to the Toronto Argonauts backfield after leaving their Week 10 rematch with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats with an upper-body injury.

According to TSN sideline reporter Matthew Scianitti, Harris came off the field during a first-quarter touchdown drive favouring his right shoulder and pec. He was examined on the sideline and taken to the locker room, before being ruled out for the remainder of the contest.

Harris had three carries for 19 yards before exiting the game. He was replaced by American A.J. Ouellette.

The future Hall of Famer is in his first season with the Argonauts after leaving his hometown Winnipeg Blue Bombers in free agency. In eight games, he has 111 carries for 471 yards and 23 receptions for 180 more.

Harris currently sits fourth on the CFL’s all-time yards from scrimmage list and became the first Canadian to rush for more than 10,000 career yards in Week 7 of this season.
