Tiger-Cats lose game, QB: Zach Collaros out for the year

Not only did the Hamilton Tiger-Cats suffer their second loss ever at Tim Horton’s Field, they have lost their quarterback for the season.

Collaros had the TiCats up on the Eskimos early on Saturday, earning a line of 7 of 10 for 90 yards and a touchdown before going down with the knee injury. The loss of Collaros knock the Tiger-Cats down a peg and winning the East Division will be tough, never mind winning the Grey Cup.

Jacory Harris and Jeff Mathews filled in and threw for a combined 216 yards and three interceptions – with that, it felt like all hope was lost in Hamilton. It’s pretty tough to lose when the opposing quarterback only throws for 49 yards but that’s just what the Tiger-Cats did – that has to be some kind of record, right? Mathews looked promising in the preseason so when he gets a full week of practice under his belt, he may be able to perform at a higher level.

Collaros is one of the “good guys” in the CFL and the 27-year-old was well on his way to winning his first Most Outstanding Player award. Suddenly Henry Burris as MOP doesn’t sound so crazy.

CFLpass wishes you a speedy recovery, Zach…
