Earlier this week the Tiger-Cats activated Canadian wide receiver Tyler Ternowski from the 6-game injured list. Ternowski found himself on the injured list due to an AC joint injury. Ternowski is a 2nd year CFL receiver that has primarily played a backup role and has played on special teams.
In 2021, Ternowski played in 14 games and has 2 catches for 56 yards and 4 special teams tackles. Coming into this 2022 season Ternowski has mentioned feeling comfortable working with quarterback Dane Evans, and that he has a better understanding of the Tiger-Cats playbook.
As a backup receiver Ternowski is looking to challenge wide receivers Bralon Addison, Papi White, and Tim White and earn the opportunity to help the Tiger-Cats offense continue to improve on a week-to-week basis. Head Coach Orlondo Steinauer mentioned that “Ternowski is a tireless worker that is getting a lot of reps.”
Steinauer also mentioned that Ternowski is a high-character player that has a consistent work ethic. The Tiger-Cats hope to see production from Ternowski, not only as a wide receiver but also as a willing contributor on special teams. Hopefully, adding Tyler Ternowski to the active roster will add depth to the wide receiver position group, and further, insulate the offence from injury issues.
