Montreal Alouettes’ offensive lineman Sean Jamieson has suffered a torn ACL, according to 3DownNation‘s John Hodge. Herb Zurkowsky of the Montreal Gazette previously reported that Jamieson was out for the season due to an injury to his knee.

The injury took place late in the second quarter of Monday’s 24-18 loss to the Ottawa Redblacks. Jamieson was replaced at centre by David Brown, a third-year blocker who was a teammate of Jamieson’s at Western University.

The Winnipeg native missed three games earlier this season with an injury to the MCL in his right knee. The Alouettes have allowed 38 sacks this season, which ranks sixth-best in the CFL, while the team’s ball carriers average 5.0 yards per carry, which ranks tied for fifth-best league-wide.

The 28-year-old was a third-round pick in the 2016 CFL Draft out of Western University and has dressed for 59 career regular season games. He was twice named a first-team U Sports All-Canadian.

Zurkowsky also reported that receiver Reggie White Jr. is out for the year due to a knee injury. The second-year target has caught 53 passes for 722 yards and two touchdowns over 15 starts at boundary slotback.

The Alouettes (7-8) can clinch a postseason berth this week with a win against the Redblacks (4-11). The game is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 14 at 7:00 p.m. EDT at TD Place Stadium in Ottawa.
