Ticats' first pick Gaydosh placed on IR by NFL's Panthers Staff

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats wait for defensive lineman Lyndon Gaydosh just got longer.

The University of Calgary product and first-overall pick in the 2013 CFL Draft signed was placed on Injured Reserve by the NFL's Carolina Panthers.

Gaydosh, who signed with the Panthers as an undrafted free agent after being drafted by the Tiger-Cats, was injured in training camp in Carolina, suffering a herniated disc.

Gaydosh could stay on IR all season and remain property of the Panthers for 2014 training camp, or team and player could reach an injury settlement and Gaydosh could be waived.

Hamilton originally drafted Gaydosh in part because he seemed a safer bet than other prospects to stay north of the border rather than try his hand in the NFL.
