Andrew Harris’ season could be at risk due to an injury he sustained this past week against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

The veteran running back is undergoing an MRI to determine the extent of the injury to his chest, per sources. There is a concern that Harris may have sustained a torn pectoral muscle, which could end his season depending on the degree of the tear.

Harris has started eight games for the Argos this season and recorded 114 carries for 490 yards along with 23 receptions for 180 yards. He is the league’s third-leading rusher, though his 4.3-yard per carry average is the lowest of his career.

The 35-year-old recently became the first Canadian player ever to reach the 10,000-yard career rushing mark and surpassed Milt Stegall for fourth all-time in yards from scrimmage.

Toronto lost to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats this past week by a score of 34-27, dropping them to 4-4 on the year. Harris was replaced by A.J. Ouellette, who rushed 10 times for 47 yards and caught three passes for 36 yards in three quarters of work.
