Ticats place Canadian DL Jamaal Westerman on six-game injured list

Hamilton Tiger-Cats Canadian defensive end Jamaal Westerman has been placed on the six-game injured list.

The 33-year-old was acquired by Hamilton in the Johnny Manziel trade. He played in eight games for the Ticats making 10 tackles since his arrival. Westerman made 19 tackles and three sacks in five games for the Alouettes before Montreal traded him away.

Westerman suffered a season-ending shoulder injury that ended his 2017 campaign prematurely. At the time he was tied for second in the CFL lead in sacks with seven. He spent six seasons in the NFL making 60 tackles, six sacks and one forced fumble before coming north where he was a CFL all-star in 2015, Westerman’s first year in the three-down league.
