Elks move Trevor Harris to six-game injured list

EDMONTON β€” Edmonton Elks quarterback Trevor Harris is headed to the six-game injured list.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.cfl.ca/2021/09/16/elks-move-trevor-harris-six-game-injured-list/

Bad news for Elks fans, neck injuries can be serious stuff. Let's hope for a quick recovery, Elks are already in a hole in the west, & their back-ups have pretty limited experience(ie: I've never heard of them)

I'm sorry to hear that. I was hoping we'd play Edmonton at their best. :weary:

Nahhhhhhh which qb is next to get gutted by the stamps

:eyes: :moneybag:
WPG plays EDM 3 of their next 4 games

The Elks have 2 bye weeks in the next 6 weeks
Do they count as Games??

Not at all I’m actually happy to see another QB in Edmonton maybe they can actually win some games , Harris is brutal

Why would they count as games ? It’s a 6 game injury list not a 6 week injury list , if they want to save the whole 6 games from the salary camp

Hate to tell you but he's the best you've got. Maybe the back-ups will step up to the plate, but I'd be surprised if they can wrestle the starters job from him.

Who is the backup? Cornelius or Prokop?

Well they can’t get any worse and they have Dakota Prukup who has experience than Taylor Cornelius who was decent in XFL

I don't know. I bet a lot of people are asking that. I had to go to their listed roster just to see who they had. I hope Elizondo knows(lol).

YIKES. Terrible news for EE.

Terrible news for the Esks - and their great fans, of course. Especially after the early season covid-19 debacle. Now this!
I suspect Edmonton is making inquiries around the land to see who they can pluck from existing CFL rosters.

My guesses - Matt Nichols looms large on such lists. Nichols has experience/games in Edmonton so he wouldn't be treading into hostile territory. Ottawa needs to dump Nichols - he's useless in the current Ottawa system. Getting a draft pick + maybe a neg-list player would be something for the RedBlacks. Lets see if Marcel Desjardins can pull such a heist off.
If not - waiting for the next decent NFL cut. Hope it isn't Chris Streveler. Winnipeg still has eyes for him!

This injury to Trevor Harris will either make or break their season. The Elks season now is in the fate of Dakota Prokop ? I hope Trevor Harris is able to resume his football career again. Since Week 6 we have lost 2 starting Pivots-Dane Evans and Trevor Harris and Cody Fajardo ? for Week 7. :fearful:

P.S. Win or Lose I will never stop supporting my Edmonton Eskimos-now Elks :joy:

Maybe, Steveler has moved down to 3rd string in Arizona from being the number 2 backup. As 3rd string he likely has zero chance of getting into a game this year.

Harris has never been a proven starter. Not with Ottawa ... not with Edmonton. Edmonton's GM, (X Ottawa assistant GM) plucked him from Ottawa cause it was easy.

Even a #3 NFL QB gets a salary higher than any current CFL starter. I'm sure if Arizona cuts Chris Streveler and gives him a salary buyout - Chris will be in Canada very quickly. Having an extra million stashed in his fur coat will give him near lifelong security - these are his prime years. Playing football, being on the field - kicking butt, taking names thats what Streveler is all about. Winnipeg would sign him in a heartbeat - maybe 3 years at $125k - $150k per anum, use him as their backup QB, backup WR/RB & special teams. The guy is incredibly versatile. Plus, he's universally loved in the Peg. Just another hobo in Phoenix.

Each and every win right now is gravy. I predict the upset on Saturday night.

This is a short season, and at this point either you have some decent game or you just grind it up and let the chips fall where they may.

I never count a victory until the game is over.
On my sport select tix I picked a tie! I can't bet against my Bombers.

You are a good sportsman and a gentleman and perhaps a scholar plus you have some good jokes too.

Either this game will be a blowout by the Blue Bombers and then fans of the Elks like me might as well head back to the bar and make it a double for the next one, or the surprise I anticipate will be at hand and if so I will explain later why I made this prediction.
