Alouettes place LB Verdone on 9-game injured list
Montreal, QC (Sports Network) - The Montreal Alouettes placed linebacker Jordan Verdone on the nine-game injured list Friday.
Verdone sustained an injured knee in last Thursday's 32-27 victory over the Edmonton Eskimos.
The Als, who have suffered injuries to key personnel in the early going and have won just two of five games, have a bye this week before returning to action on Aug. 8 against the Toronto Argonauts.
Montreal also announced the addition of defensive lineman Scott Paxson to the practice roster.
