MONTREAL -- The Montreal Alouettes were dealt a disheartening blow on Monday, as they announced slotback Jamel Richardson will miss the rest of the 2013 season with a torn ACL and LCL in his left knee.
The 31-year-old suffered the injury during Sunday's practice. The two-time CFL All-Star will require surgery followed by a nine- to 12-month recovery period, bringing his season to a premature end.
Richardson, who is third among the Alouettes this season with 18 catches for 197 receiving yards, reached the 1,000-yard receiving plateau for a fifth consecutive season with Montreal in 2012.
The Syracuse, NY native has led the team in receiving yards three out of the past five seasons, while also setting a league record for 100-yard games in a single season with 12 and tying the team record for most receptions in a season with 112 in 2011.
Richardson is currently tied for third place on the Alouettes' all-time career receiving touchdowns list with 48.
