HAMILTON — After suffering a season-ending broken collarbone last season, Brandon Banks took to the field on Sunday at McMaster University with the rest of his Ticats teammates as Hamilton opened their training camp.
According to a report from TSN’s Matthew Scianitti, Banks has full motion and strength after undergoing surgery to repair the injury he suffered in Week 19 against the Ottawa REDBLACKS.
However, an off-season hit during a workout moved the plate in his shoulder causing his shoulder blade to become slightly uneven. The speedy receiver will wait to see how the plate (that will be removed next off-season) reacts during contact.

Before suffering the injury last year, Banks set a new club record for the most 100-plus yards receiving games in a single season with 10, eclipsing Tony Champion’s eight, which held up as the franchise’s all-time high since 1989. Banks’ 94 receptions and 1,423 receiving yards in 2018 both rank fifth in a single season in Ticats history.
