HAMILTON — The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced Saturday that quarterback Jeremiah Masoli will miss the remainder of the 2019 Canadian Football League season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Masoli suffered the injury with five minutes remaining in the first quarter of Friday’s 23-15 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton. No date for surgery has been determined.

Dane Evans, who completed 13 of 25 passes in relief on Friday, is slated to start in Masoli’s place moving forward.
