Harris had just rejoined his teammates on the field this past week, after missing a pair of games with a neck injury. As many quarterbacks have this season, he struggled to get a lot of production against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ elite defence. Harris was 9-22 for 87 yards in the Elks’ 30-3 loss to the Bombers.

The two teams will face off again on Friday, with Winnipeg making the trip to Edmonton.

Cornelius has made 47 of 77 passes through three games this season for 624 yards, three touchdowns and six interceptions. His first start came in Edmonton against Winnipeg in Week 7.
