Ticats QB Jeremiah Masoli goes down with non-contact injury

Ticats quarterback Jeremiah Masoli want down with a non-contact injury during the first quarter against Winnipeg.

Masoli went to the the locker room after being examined on the trainer’s table. He had completed 6-of-7 passes for 59 yards with one interception and two carries for 23 yards and a touchdown. Hamilton was leading 14-0 at the time Masoli left the game.

“He’s going to get some further imaging in the morning. We’ll know in the morning right away,” Ticats head coach Orlondo Steinauer said after the game.

“Jeremiah doesn’t need practice, if it’s something he can get through he doesn’t need to be out there. Meaning if he didn’t practice days one, two, three he’s still able to run the offence.”

The 30-year-old led the Ticats to their best start since 1998 at 4-1 entering Week 7. Masoli completed 71 per cent of his passes for 1,576 yards with nine touchdowns against seven interceptions adding 17 carries for 79 yards and four touchdowns.

Masoli threw for over 5,200 yards with 28 touchdowns against 18 interceptions during his first full season as the No. 1 QB in Hamilton in 2018. That came after Masoli led the league over the final 10 games of the 2017 regular season in passing yards with 3,032. Masoli is set to make over $400,000 with incentives – $100,000 paid March 1 – as the starter in 2019.
