EDMONTON — The Edmonton Eskimos will be missing their starting quarterback on Friday night.

Trevor Harris, the CFL’s leading passer this season, has been placed on the one-game injured list and will miss Friday’s home game against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Backup Logan Kilgore is slated to make his first career start for Edmonton.

Harris suffered an upper-body injury in the Eskimos’ last game on Sept. 7 against Calgary.

Harris will become the eighth of nine CFL opening-day starting quarterbacks to miss at least one game because of injury.

The only quarterback to have played in every one of his team’s games so far will be Mike Reilly of the B.C. Lions.
