The hard-luck Hamilton Tiger-Cats have been dealt yet another blow.
Dan LeFevour, who has filled in at quarterback for an injured Zach Collaros, is expected to miss the balance of the season following a knee injury suffered in Saturday’s 30-20 loss to Calgary.
While nothing official has yet to be announced and no diagnostic testing has confirmed the severity of the injury, it’s believed LeFevour has a tear in his ACL.
The Ticats do have a bye week until their next game, Labour Day against the Argos, but it’s anyone’s guess where the team turns to at the key position. Jeremiah Masoli would seem to be the obvious choice, but his overthrown pass led to a key interception against the Stamps.
Collaros, the ex-Argo playmaker, remains on the Ticats’ six-game injured list following a concussion.
LeFevour clearly showed ability, capable of making throws in the pocket, more than capable of making plays with his feet on designed plays or when flushed out of the pocket.
In fact, in four of his starts, LeFevour produced two 100-yard rushing games while completing close to 70% of his passes, which puts him in the accuracy class of a Ricky Ray.
As the Ticats now try to identify a starter for Labour Day and presumably until Collaros gets cleared to play, there’s growing speculation that Hamilton’s new home, Tim Horton’s Field, won’t be ready for Labour Day. London’s TD Waterhouse Stadium is now being bandied about as a possible venue, a site that once housed the Argos for a pre-season game.
