Hamilton Tiger-Cats quarterback Zach Collaros left Saturday's game against the Edmonton Eskimos due to an apparent knee injury and will not return.

East Division leading Hamilton Tiger-Cats saw their quarterback Zach Collaros go down with an apparent knee injury during Saturday's game in Hamilton against the Edmonton Oilers. 

Collaros appeared to bend his right knee while being tackled on a running play in the second quarter at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton. The Tiger-Cats were leading the Eskimos 7-0 at the time of the injury.

The Tiger-Cats confirmed that Collaros wouldn't return to the game and the quarterback was heard to say: "It's not good."

Other CFL quarterbacks responded to the injury via Twitter.

It's been a recurring problem throughout the Canadian Football league this season with several starting quarterbacks being knocked out of action. West Division QB's injured this season include Darian Durant of Saskatchewan, BC's Travis Lulay and Drew Willy of Winnipeg.

Jeff Matthews and later Jacory Harris, replaced Collaros for the Tiger-Cats.
