Long-Name Injury

  • Print

At practice today, WR Terence Jeffers-Harris was still in his black walking boot, a soft cast he’s been wearing since suffering an ankle injury in Calgary a couple games back. During the Paul LaPolice Show on CJOB this evening, the Bombers head coach revealed the receiver would be out another 4-5 weeks.

Whoa.

 

There is some question as to the nature of the injury. Originally, LaPolice told reporters it was a high ankle sprain with a timetable of 1-2 weeks. Maybe three weeks. Jeffers-Harris than said it wasn’t that bad – telling media members that it was in fact a low ankle sprain and that he would be back sooner than later. Now, the coach is saying that it is indeed a long-term injury and that his speed merchant won’t be back for another month.

 

Regardless of the differing schedules or the severity of the sprain (if that’s what it is), word of a 4-5 week shelf life is not good news for the Bombers. The rookie receiver was having an outstanding campaign before he went down, catching 21 balls for 317 yards and three touchdowns.

 

His replacement, Chris Davis, has four catches for 47 yards in two games.
