Receiver Luke Tasker will return to the Ticats’ lineup Thursday night when Hamilton visits Montreal in the back half of their home-and-home series.

Tasker has missed the last two weeks with a shoulder injury.

However, Hamilton will be without receiver Bralon Addison after the team placed him on the one-game injured list.

The Tiger-Cats (3-0) beat the Alouettes (0-2) 41-10 last Friday night at Tim Hortons Field.
