The Hamilton Tiger-Cats will be without one of its top offensive playmakers for the remainder of the season with receiver Bralon Addison having surgery for a ruptured Achilles tendon.

Addison suffered the injury during the first quarter against the Toronto Argonauts and had to be carted off the field.

Starting in all eight games for Hamilton this season, the 28-year-old has 43 catches for 433 yards. Addison was limited to three games during the 2021 season with a leg injury recording 18 receptions for 231 yards.

The Tiger-Cats signed receivers Tony Brown and Tyler Turner to the roster with Addison sidelined.
