Canadian running back Andrew Harris will miss the rest of the 2022 CFL season, according to TSN’s Dave Naylor.

The @TorontoArgos have determined that @andrewharris33’s 2022 season is over. Team was hopeful he would be back in 4-6 weeks but torn pec muscle requires season-ending surgery.

Harris started eight games for the Argos this year and recorded 114 carries for 490 yards along with 23 receptions for 180 yards. He is currently the CFL’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.

A.J. Ouellette replaced Harris in the club’s 34-27 loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats this past week and rushed 10 times for 47 yards. The Argos also have Canadian running back Daniel Adeboboye on the roster, who was selected in the second round of the 2022 CFL Draft out of Bryant University.

The Argos (4-4) are scheduled to host the Calgary Stampeders (5-3) on Saturday, Aug. 20 with kickoff slated for 7:00 p.m. EDT.
