Quarterback Dane Evans was limited at practice due to a knee injury on Monday according to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ injury report.

The 28-year-old completed 36-of-51 pass attempts for 425 yards with three touchdowns, and two interceptions in a 33-30 overtime loss to the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday. He also rushed six times for 22 yards and fumbled twice, one of which was lost late in the fourth quarter and returned for a touchdown.

The Ticats are scheduled to visit the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday night at IG Field in what will be the first meeting between the two teams since the 2021 Grey Cup. Hamilton held a 22-10 fourth quarter lead at home in the CFL’s title game last year before Winnipeg came back to win the contest by a score of 33-25 in overtime.

Other notable players featured on Hamilton’s injury report include running back Don Jackson (limited, knee), receiver Tim White (limited, thumb), defensive tackle Dylan Wynn (calf, non-participant), and strong-side linebacker Kameron Kelly (limited, shoulder).

The Ticats have started the 2022 regular season with an 0-2 record following losses to the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Stamps.

Boundary cornerback Winston Rose was a non-participant for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers due to a foot injury according to the club’s injury report.
