New #Ticats kicker @Kenny__Allen just went 7-for7 on field goals in practice including makes from 46, 48 and 50 yards. That's encouraging.

Practice update: new Ticats kicker has perfect day

Kenny Allen, who was signed on Monday to replace the injured Sergio Castillo, went seven-for-seven on field goals during the special teams session at practice on Tuesday. Working with snapper Aaron Crawford and holder Luke Tasker, Allen hit a 32 yards extra point from the centre of the field, then hit from 36, 40, 43, 46 and 48 yards while more-or-less alternating between the right and left hash.
He finished the session with a 50 yarder from the centre of the field that would have been good from at least 55 yards out.

As for other practice news, it appears the Ticats are getting hit by the flu bug. A day after Abdul Kanneh missed practice due to illness, receiver Brandon Banks is out with similar symptoms. Kanneh was back on the field today, as was offensive lineman Mike Filer (who is dealing with a lower body issue) though both seemed at least somewhat limited.

Now if we can see how he does with rain and wind.....that’ll be a true measure at THF. All in all, very encouraging since he said he was primarily a punter.

I just read that CGY outstanding KR Roy Finch is out for Fridays game. :wink:

"The bad news is that the Stampeders will be without their superstar kick returner for Friday’s game in Hamilton against the Tiger-Cats."

Calgary is ripe to lose...with Finch being out, and Bo ready to be eaten by our
Go Cats.
