Playing the Hamilton Tiger Cats at home allows them to play a team that, like last week against Ottawa, they have a chance to beat and some would argue should beat if they are serious about making a run to the playoffs.

Alouettes quarterback Jonathan Crompton, who we talked about here will be playing with a heavy heart. His ex-fiancee Chelsea who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and one of the reasons he grows his hair for Locks For Love, passed away from the disease on Friday.

In roster news, Aaron Lavarias is back on the active roster while Brian Brikowski and Jermaine McElveen are inactive. Scott Paxson is also on the 46-man roster. On offence, Chad Johnson will be active but will not start. That spot will go to Brandon London. James Rodgers, who scored his first CFL touchdown last week, will be back as a returner and receiver.

Mossis Madu, who has 100 yards on 27 carries on the season is the only running back listed on the 46-man roster for the Tiger Cats. What Hamilton lacks in running backs, they make up for with depth at wide receiver. Quarterback Zach Collaros has Luke Tasker, Greg Ellingson, Andy Fantuz, Bakari Grant and Samuel Giguere to throw to.

Former Alouettes defensive back Ed Gainey is on the 46-man roster for the Tiger Cats. He was one of the final cuts the Alouettes made this season.
