Rookie Newman to start at quarterback for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats


Published September 4, 2022 at 11:27 am

Rookie Jamie Newman will start at quarterback Monday when the Hamilton Tiger-Cats host the Toronto Argonauts.

Newman was listed atop the team’s depth chart Sunday, with sophomore Jalen Morton serving as his backup.

Veteran Dane Evans (shoulder) is listed as the third quarterback and is expected to dress Monday but it’s unclear if he’ll play.

Newman has appeared in eight regular-season games with Hamilton, completing both passes he has attempted for four yards.

The six-foot-four, 230-pound Newman has rushed 10 times for 56 yards and scored three touchdowns.

The annual Labour Day clash will be the final regular-season meeting between the two longtime rivals.

Toronto (5-5) sits atop the East Division standings with Hamilton (3-8) tied with Ottawa (3-8) for third.

The Argos lead the season series with the Ticats 2-1.
