The injury was suffered during Friday’s pre-season game against the Blue Bombers at IG Field in Winnipeg.

Parker, 29, signed with the Eskimos this off-season after suiting up for the Lions for nine games in 2018.

He’s played 117 games over eight CFL seasons, totaling 2,344 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns.
