Ticats missing key players as practice resumes
Posted on July 11, 2017 by Drew Edwards // 0 Comments
[i]The Hamilton Tiger-Cats were without three key contributors as practice got underway on Tuesday.
All-star linebacker Simoni Lawrence and centre Mike Filer, both of whom were injured in the first half of last Saturday’s loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders, were absent as the team took to the field for the their first on-field session of the week.
Linebacker Will Hill, who has been suspended one game by the CFL for making contact with an official, was also absent as things got underway at Tim Hortons Field. Hill has the option of appealing the league’s ruling, which would likely allow him to play in Saturday’s home opener against the B.C. Lions.
Defensive back Abdul Kanneh, a key free agent acquisition who has missed the first two games of the season due to injury, practiced on Tuesday.
The Ticats also made a couple of roster moves on Tuesday, signing national defensive back Tristan Doughlin to the practice roster and releasing American DB Chris Davis.[/i][url=http://3downnation.com/2017/07/11/ticats-missing-key-players-practice-resumes/]http://3downnation.com/2017/07/11/ticat ... e-resumes/[/url]

#Ticats say Will Hill's absence from practice & media today was family-related & unrelated to the suspension.
