The Hamilton Tiger-Cats will welcome Dylan Wynn back into the lineup for Thursday’s game against the Edmonton Elks.
The veteran defensive tackle suffered a season-ending knee injury last year and has yet to dress for a game since. The three-time East Division all-star has dressed for 68 career CFL games and recorded 170 defensive tackles and 27 sacks, winning a Grey Cup as a member of the Toronto Argonauts in 2017.
Hamilton is also getting receiver Anthony Johnson back from a hamstring injury and he will start at boundary wideout, replacing Terry Godwin II, who has been placed on the one-game injured list with illness.
Canadian offensive lineman Kyle Saxelid is returning from a knee injury, while veteran offensive tackle Chris Van Zeyl has been moved to the six-game injured list with an arm issue. Winnipeg native Mason Bennett will return at defensive end after recovering from a hamstring injury, while defensive tackle Mohamed Diallo has been placed on the six-game injured list with a knee injury.
Taylor Powell will make his second consecutive start at quarterback with Kai Locksley as his primary backup. Rookie quarterback Mike Glass III will dress as the team’s third-string passer after he signed with the team this week to replace Antonio Pipkin, who was traded to the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
The Ticats (3-5) are scheduled to host the Edmonton Elks (0-9) on Thursday, Aug. 17 with kickoff slated for 7:30 p.m. EDT. The clubs met at Commonwealth Stadium in Week 6 with Hamilton earning a 37-29 victory.
