NOT A GREAT DAY FOR TICATS

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats will begin the season without star quarterback Zach Collaros

"He will not be able to participate in training camp," head coach Kent Austin told reporters on a conference call Wednesday. "He will be going through his normal rehabilitation protocol so if you mean, 'Will he be ready for the season coming out of training camp?', the answer is no."

Collaros continues to rehab his way back from a torn ACL that ended his 2015 campaign in September.


The 27-year-old was in the midst of an MVP-caliber season at the time of the injury, throwing for 3,376 yards, 25 touchdowns, and eight interceptions in 12 games.

MEANWHILE ...

HAMILTON - Kent Austin says his health won't impact his ability to continue as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats head coach and vice-president of football operations.

Austin, 52, confirmed Wednesday he went to hospital Tuesday but was released a short time later. Austin told reporters on a conference call he'll be able to keep working with the Ticats.

"Yeah, I had a hang nail that I had to get cut out,'' Austin said with a chuckle. "It was really really bothering me.

"No concerns at all. There are some things I have to address and they'll get addressed but everything is going to be fine.''

No specific details were available but there are reports Austin suffered a suspected allergic reaction. Austin said he's continuing to undergo tests.

"The good news is they ruled out all the major stuff,'' he said. "Nothing too serious but I've got to go through some other things but I feel good about the diagnosis at this point.''

Kent Austin needs to deal with stress better to stay healthy. The loss of their QB is a big hit. The Ti-Cats will probably be the team out east to miss the play-offs.
