Delvin Breaux healthy, able to rejoin Ticats starting lineup

Hamilton Tiger-Cats defensive back Delvin Breaux is finally healthy.

“Delvin’s looked really good. He’s progressed nicely, hasn’t had any setbacks, so we’ll look for him to contribute Friday night,” Ticats head coach Orlondo Steinauer said.

Breaux has been on the six-game injured list following Week 8 against the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Through seven games in 2019, Breaux has recorded 23 tackles and one forced fumble.

Breaux played 14 games in 2018 for the Ticats making 24 tackles, forcing two fumbles and scoring one touchdown while earning CFL all-star honours after coming back from the NFL. Hamilton made Breaux the highest paid defensive back in the CFL last year and he kept that title on his three-year extension signed in February.

The Ticats have allowed the fewest points in the league (276). Adding Breaux back into the starting lineup makes Hamilton’s defence even more formidable. Edmonton visits Tim Hortons Field on Friday night.
