TORONTO - Ben Heenan's day ended prematurely at the CFL evaluation camp.

The Saskatchewan Huskies highly rated offensive lineman had to withdraw from the camp prior to the start of one-on-one drills due to a hip ailment.

The six-foot-four, 310-pound Heenan came into the weekend evaluation camp as the top-ranked prospect for this year's CFL draft.

Heenan ran the 40-yard dash and took part in the shuttle run agility drill but was noticeably absent when the offensive and defensive linemen came together to run one-on-one drills.

Heenan took part in medicals and team interviews Friday and was second overall yesterday in the bench press, lifting 225 pounds 32 times.

There was a lot of anticipation to see Heenan in the one-on-one drills before the injury.
