[b]The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are suddenly, improbably, thin at Canadian defensive tackle.
Veteran Brian Bulcke suffered an apparent left knee injury during one-on-one drills halfway through Wednesday's training camp session at McMaster University. He spent the rest of practice on the trainer's table with a bag of ice on his left knee and limped off the field wearing a brace.
Head coach Kent Austin said he didn't have an immediate update on the severity of the injury, but expressed concern for a well-liked player who suffered a torn bicep last September and missed the second half of the 2014 season.
"We hope it's not serious for Brian," Austin said. "He's worked so hard to come back and he's one of our leaders."
While the Ticats still have all-star Ted Laurent, the team has suffered a rash of injuries and now finds itself with little depth there, at least for now. Linden Gaydosh tore his Achilles in the off-season and is done for the year, Michael Atkinson missed Wednesday's session and is coming off back-to-back knee surgeries while both Hasan Hazime and Evan Gill are rehabbing injuries of their own and aren't practising.[/b]
