Edmonton Eskimos activate quarterback Harris from six-game injured list

EDMONTON — The Edmonton Eskimos activated quarterback Trevor Harris from the six-game injured list Monday.

Harris went on the six-game injured list after suffering an injury to his throwing arm in Edmonton's 33-17 loss to the Calgary Stampeders on Sept. 7. Logan Kilgore started four games during Harris's absence, leading the Eskimos to a 2-2 record.

During that span, Kilgore was 103-of-153 passing (67.3 per cent) for 1,115 yards with four touchdowns and eight interceptions. In 12 games, Harris completed 316-of-441 passes (71.7 per cent) for 3,706 yards with 15 TDs and just four interceptions.

It's unclear if Harris will play Saturday when Edmonton (8-8) hosts the Saskatchewan Roughriders (11-5) to open a home-and-home series. The Eskimos can finish no higher than fourth in the West Division and will be the crossover team once the playoffs begin.

Edmonton will visit the Montreal Alouettes (9-7) in the East Division semifinal Nov. 10.

In other moves, Edmonton added American quarterback Troy Williams to its practice roster while releasing American defensive back Robert Priester.
