Ti-Cat Tidbits

No one big story today, but a few little ones courtesy of a couple of sources.

First, as I wrote on Sunday, Bo Smith is done for the season. Also done for the year is Matt Kirk with an ankle injury, and Matt Carter may be out for the remainder of the year with a foot injury. Add in Arland Bruce's no-show due to a hamstring injury the last two weeks and the Cats are starting to get hit with injuries at the worst possible time.

Secondly, Jason Shivers is looking like the guy who will replace Bo Smith in the lineup for the Cats. Shivers's return pushes Geoff Tisdale back to corner, while Shivers takes the Inside Halfback spot.

Finally, TSN released the results of a player poll taken on a number of subjects, and Tiger-Cat QB Kevin Glenn was voted the most underrated player in the league. Glenn garnered 17.1% of the vote. TSN did not release who any of the runners up were.

I am not surprised that Glenn would be named most underrated. He was unceremoniously dumped by Winnipeg following the 2008 season. He came to Hamilton as a backup in 2009, and did not gain the starting job until late in the 2009 season. Since then, Glenn has been masterful, breaking Tiger-Cat single-season records in 2010. Glenn is probably the most underappreciated player in the CFL, but there is no doubt that a Grey Cup ring would change all that.
