Ticats’ Jalen Saunders likely out for the season

Hamilton Tiger-Cats receiver Jalen Saunders seems to have suffered an injury to end his 2018 campaign.

“I think we got bad news, I’m not sure exactly what it all entails, but it sounds like he’s out for the year,” head coach June Jones said.

Saunders left the Ticats Labour Day victory against Toronto in the second quarter and did not return.

The 25-year-old was coming off a stellar first year in the CFL, 76 catches for 1,170 yards and four touchdowns in 2017, and was on pace to go over the 1,000-yard mark again. Saunders had 45 receptions for 739 yards and two majors in nine games.
