Former NFL and University of Texas quarterback Vince Young tore his hamstring during the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ training camp and was subsequently waived by the Canadian Football League team.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported the news Saturday and cited Young’s agent, Leigh Steinberg.

This comes after Young signed with the Roughriders in March.

“I wouldn’t say a comeback,” he said at the time, per the Associated Press (h/t ESPN.com) “I’d just say an opportunity. I always wanted to play football again, but didn’t know how it was going to happen. God always works in mysterious ways.”

Young last appeared in an NFL game in 2011 with the Philadelphia Eagles and threw four touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Despite the unceremonious end to his NFL career (he also spent time in training camp with the Green Bay Packers and Cleveland Browns in 2013 and 2014, respectively), Young was a Pro Bowler and the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2006 with the Tennessee Titans after they drafted him with the No. 3 pick.

He also led the Longhorns to the national championship at the collegiate level.
