The first of two TiCat injury reports, for this week, shows that the team is dealing with a few more injuries, from the WPG game -- Wynn & Adeleke (knees). Brooks (hamstring), Santos-Knox (quad), and Durant (ankle). Based on practice participation, it would appear that Wynn is the most serious and Brooks the least. The other three participated, in limited fashion, at the Tuesday practice. I'm guessing, reading the list, that Ternowski is ready to return, after missing a half dozen games, and it's encouraging to see Howsare as a full participant.
Coming off a bye week, the birds are practising without both their safety, Marc-Antoine Dequoy, and his back-up, Zach Lindley. The starter is missing practice over something non-football related, while the back-up has a hip issue. And, on offence, their regular LG Philippe Gagnon has a back problem, expected to keep him out of the line-up, this week.
This is a bit of a red herring IMO. Gagnon has struggled at LG this year, and his replacement, Lestage (who spent time in the NFL before signing with us this year), has done excellent work as the team has incorporated him into the offense. I actually think our O-line will be better with Lestage starting.
I agree that safety is a weakness for Montreal, with both the starter and backup out. Hoping you Cats don't exploit it.
I hear ya on that . I'm praying that when the depth chart comes out later today that Adeleke is on it . With Wynn already out if Adeleke is a no go then that is going to leave us very susceptible down the middle of our 'D' . It should also be noted that Santos-Knox while dressing was listed on the daily IL on day 2 as limited with a quad issue .
He is on my projected out list for tomorrows game a few posts above this one . As for the " The Missing Man" moniker ? Believe me if he indeed doesn't dress , he definitely won't be missed . So far he has been nothing short of a wasted roster spot on gameday .
