The Hamilton Tiger-Cats appear to be handing the ball to their fourth different quarterback this season.
According to the Hamilton Spectator, the 3-12 Ticats are ready to turn the offence over to 24-year old former New York Jet Kevin Eakin.
Eakin has taken most of the reps in practice this week as the club prepares to face the Ottawa Renegades on Friday night.
Hamilton coach Greg Marshall all but confirmed Eakin as the starter.
"We very well could start Kevin in the game on Friday night. He did a good job yesterday in practice and took quite a few of the reps. He is getting more and more confident with the playbook," Marshall told the paper yesterday.
The 6-foot, 219-pound quarterback joined the Ticats last month.
