Veteran running back Harris resumes practising with Toronto Argonauts

TORONTO — Andrew Harris has resumed practising with the Toronto Argonauts.

The veteran Canadian running back was back on the practice field Friday after missing Toronto's final 10 regular-season games following surgery for a torn pectoral muscle.

He was injured in the Argos' 34-27 loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Aug. 12 and the initial prognosis was Harris's year was done.

Toronto (11-7) finished atop the East Division standings for a second straight year to earn an opening-round playoff bye. The Argos will host either Hamilton or the Montreal Alouettes in the conference final Nov. 13.

The five-foot-10, 216-pound Harris ran for 490 yards on 114 carries in his first season with Toronto, adding 23 catches for 180 yards.

The 35-year-old Winnipeg native signed with the Argos this offseason following five seasons with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, which included consecutive Grey Cup titles in 2019 and '21.
