Alouettes QB Troy Smith put on 6-game injured list
Former Heisman Trophy winner is dealing with multiple injuries
Montreal Alouettes quarterback Troy Smith won't be available for Saturday night's game at Saskatchewan as he has been added to the team's six-game injured list.
The former Heisman Trophy winner has struggled this season for the 1-5 Alouettes. He is nursing knee, ankle and thumb injuries, a team spokesman said.
Smith was 20-of-45 passing for 231 yards last weekend against Edmonton and has completed just 47.7 per cent of his passes this year.
Entering play against the Roughriders, the Alouettes were averaging a league-low 16.3 points per game.
Backup Alex Brink was expected to replace Smith under centre against 4-2 Saskatchewan.
