It was announced Friday by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers that Andrew Harris would not only be missing their game with the Lions this Saturday, but the player is now officially on a 6-game injury list because of a knee injury he suffered last week.
As we’ve previously reported, the Bombers need that win perhaps even more than the Lions do; if they win, they secure they’re spot in the playoff game for the West Division top spot, essentially guaranteeing that the final for the coveted West Division top spot be played on their home turf, come December 5th.
Harris was injured during last week’s game against the Edmonton Elks, injuring his knee quite severely, it now turns out. It happened in the first half, immediately following a five-yard TD reception.
The 34 year old is actually a Winnipeg native. He played for two CFL teams since the start of his pro career, the BC Lions being his first CFL team. He played with the mighty Lions from 2009 until 2015. He’s been with the Bombers ever since, and has had quite the career thus far. The Bombers will undoubtedly feel the loss in the offense for these next six games for sure.
RB, Harris, is a three-time Canadian Bowl champion and two-time Grey Cup champion. So far this season, he has rushed for 623 yards and also, three TDs on 116 carries.
