London, Ont. native Jacob Ruby released by Edmonton Elks of the CFL
The Edmonton Elks have released offensive lineman and London Ont. native Jacob Ruby, for breaching the team's COVID-19 protocols.
Ruby, who attended Medway High school, was released Tuesday, the last day of the CFL team's 10-day isolation period for Tier 1 players, coaches and staff following an outbreak of COVID-19 among players.
The team did not say what Ruby had done, but said in a statement that the move was part of the club's "ongoing commitment to strictly following the CFL's COVID protocols."
Ruby signed with Edmonton in 2017 after breaking into the CFL with the Montreal Alouettes in 2015.
The Elks have been in isolation since the onset of a COVID-19 outbreak that affected 13 players. The outbreak led to the postponement of the Elks' Aug. 26 game against the Argonauts in Toronto.
The Elks said Tuesday that PCR tests collected Sunday and Monday were all negative, making it five consecutive days without a positive test.
Barring any positive tests, the team will hold meetings and a walkthrough on Wednesday and conduct a full practice on Thursday.
Edmonton's next game is Sept. 6 at Calgary.
