After enduring a neck injury in Edmonton’s Week 6 game against the Calgary Stampeders, Elks quarterback Trevor Harris is set to make his return as the starter for the team’s Week 10 matchup against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers per Elks color analyst Dave Campbell.
Harris was activated from the team’s 6-game injury list on Saturday, September 25th, and returned to practice the same day, but was held out of Edmonton’s game versus the Ottawa Redblacks last Tuesday.
After Tuesday’s loss of 34-24 to the Redblacks, the Elks move to a 2-5 record on the season and take over as last place in the CFL.
When asked if he’ll be making his return on Friday, Harris stated,
“I hope so, but that’s always up to the coaches., so I’ll do my part, do what I can to be available and get ready to rock,” he said. “I’ve been healthy. I felt good last week, and I feel better this week, so I feel ready to rock, to get the second half of the season going and go on this run.”
Having played in only 5 games so far this season, Trevor Harris is currently ranked 5th in the league in passing yards and has completed 126/170 passes (74.1% Comp) for 1,481 yards, 6 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions.
With matchups against some of the league’s best teams in the back half of the season, The Elks will have an uphill battle to make the playoffs.
In their last 7 games of the season, the Elks are set to face the Blue Bombers twice, the Roughriders twice, the Tiger-Cats, the Argonauts, and the B.C. Lions. Additionally, the team’s final 3 games will be played over a 7-day span.
The Elks next game will take place in Winnipeg versus the Blue Bombers on Friday, October 8th at 5:30 pm MST.
