TORONTO — After battling knee issues for three weeks now, Hamilton’s Delvin Breaux is set to return and be ready to go in time for the Tiger-Cats home playoff date against the BC Lions on Sunday.
The non-playoff teams have also kept themselves busy this week, despite not having a game to prepare for. As the Toronto Argonauts have parted ways with Marc Trestman a year after winning the franchises’ 17th Grey Cup, both Edmonton and Montreal have voiced their commitment to their current coaching situations as Jason Maas and Mike Sherman will remain as head coaches in 2019.
It’s been a busy week as the Grey Cup Playoffs get set to kickoff, but also, the league also announced the West and East Division All-Star squads, along with the finalists for individual player awards leading up to the Shaw CFL Awards which will be held during Grey Cup Week in Edmonton later this month.
All this and more in the latest from Checking Down:
