[b]The Tiger-Cats have signed international quarterbackJacory Harris and international offensive lineman Jeremy Lewis.

Harris, a 6-3, 203-pound native of Miami, Florida, spent last season with the Edmonton Eskimos following appearances with the NFL’s Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles. During his four-year NCAA career at Miami, he threw for 8,826 yards and 70 touchdowns while running for 626 yards and five rushing majors.

Lewis, a 6-4, 312-pound native of West Palm Beach, Florida, previously spent time with the Toronto Argonauts and the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers after four seasons at Miami.

The Ticats also announced that national kicker/punter Brett Lauther has been moved to the practice roster and international defensive end Brandon Thurmond has been added to the six-game injured list.[/b]

This does not bode well for the status of Collaros

Drew Edwards ? @scratchingpost
RT @miltonatthespec: Collaros arrives but not dressed to practice #ticats #cfl

Rico Murray and Brandon Stewart not in secondary. No news on them. Fantuz taking reps huge relief for #Ticats amidst Collaros worry. #CFL


Is Lewis going to play tackle or guard, do you think? Have to stabilize that O-line or it won't matter who's behind centre or lining up at receiver...

just tweeted by the Ticats

Coach Austin says Zach Collaros will not play this week due to injury. #Ticats #CFL

Unfortunate, but really, it doesn’t matter who we field as our QB if the offensive line can’t provide protection.
(and thus far, they look weak)

this is definitely worrisome as all 4 backups have a combined zero CFL starts to their resume.

Masoli may provide the best chance to win, although adding Lewis who has had limited success as a pro will do little if anything to help bolster this distastrous Oline.

The Cats need to trade up for some help as there is nothing of value available on the open market.

we all knew this was coming after Zack was mauled by the Linebacker
I bet he gone till Labour day

Masoli running a read-option would help our O-Line immensely
and would get Gable involved in the offence.
I suspect both Masoli and LeFevour getting specific packages (as Austin calls them)
