The Ottawa Redblacks uttered a cautious sigh of relief Thursday night as it appeared quarterback Trevor Harris did not sustain a serious injury after leaving a pre-season game against the Montreal Alouettes early in the first quarter.
Harris left the field after being hit by Montreal linebacker Chris Ackie with what appeared to be a lower left leg injury. Harris did not return to the game, but was seen on the sidelines during the second half without any crutches or any other aid.
"I have not talked to our doctor, but as you can see it was nothing catastrophic," said Ottawa head coach Rick Campbell. "Obviously, this being a pre-season game there was no doubt that he was not going to come back in this game. The way Trevor is he would be fighting me to get back on the field. We'll see how he feels in the morning.
"It's looking like a short term thing which is good news and we'll see how sore he is the morning."
In his brief appearance, Harris went 3 for 5 for 34 yards and one interception.
