Aprile was placed on the six-game injured list for an undisclosed reason Wednesday.

Aprile's presence on the six-game injured list shouldn't affect the Tiger-Cats' slotback situation too much, as he's the No.3 receiver behind both Luke Tasker and Jalen Saunders. Aprile has appeared in just three games this season, catching three passes for 24 yards. Six games puts his potential return on Oct. 13 against the Stampeders.

Aprile will start at slotback in Friday's game against the Redblacks.

Aprile made his season debut last week as a reserve, but he will have a chance to play a bigger role for the Tiger-Cats in Week 9 as he replaces Brian Tyms in the starting unit.

Aprile (undisclosed) is listed as a reserve wide receiver on the depth chart for Saturday's matchup with the Blue Bombers.

Aprile has spent the entire season on the injured list, but it appears he will make his 2017 debut this season. Aprile has suited up for 24 career games but is still looking for his first reception, so it seems unlikely he will play a key role in the Tiger-Cats' game plan.

Aprile was placed on the six-game injured list Thursday with an undisclosed setback.

It's not clear what type of injury Aprile is dealing with, but it will keep him sidelined until at least Week 8. Aprile is entering his fourth CFL season but is still looking for his first reception.

Aprile re-signed with the Tiger-Cats on Monday, Drew Edwards of 3DownNation.com reports.

The 27-year-old receiver was set to head to the open market, but will instead remain with the Tiger-Cats, where he's been the last three seasons. Aprile played in eight games during the 2016 campaign and while he failed to pull in a catch, he could see a slightly bigger role during the upcoming season with fellow wide receiver Andy Fantuz dealing with an injury. That said, Aprile still appears to be more of deeper reserve, so a huge jump in production may be a bit optimistic.

Aprile (undisclosed) won't play Saturday against the Lions.

Aprile's absence shouldn't have a fantasy impact as he hasn't recorded a single catch all season.
