Montreal Alouettes linebacker Walter Spencer is in serious but stable condition following an incident in a Montreal bar early Monday morning.

The 31-year-old was rushed to a local hospital where he was treated for upper-body injuries. According to police, Spencer was cut on the head and upper body by what might have been a broken bottle.

“After having surgery, he is in serious but stable condition” a Montreal Police Service spokesman said.

The suspects involved in the incident ran away from the scene of the crime and investigators are still trying to locate them.

"For the moment, the organization will not comment on the situation and will let the police continue their investigation," an Alouettes news release stated.

"The Alouettes are saddened by what has happened and our thoughts and prayers go out to Walter, his family and his friends."

Spencer received some support  from his teammate, linebacker Shea Emry who wrote on his Twitter account:  “Get well, soon, Spence. I’ll protect the fortress”

Spencer, who was born in Detroit, currently leads the Alouettes for most special team tackles this season with 11. The seven-year CFL veteran has spent the past four seasons with the Alouettes.
