Canadian defensive lineman Ted Laurent has been placed on the six-game injured list by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Tiger-Cats head coach Kent Austin said Laurent "did not look good" Tuesday at practice and later said the 29-year-old would be out at least two games.

Laurent is suffering from a lower-body injury. 

Laurent's replacement, Evan Gill, had to leave walkthrough Monday with a serious injury. Austin confirmed that it was an Achilles issue. 

The Tiger-Cats (0-7) are looking to get back on track Friday as they host the 1-6 Ottawa Redblacks at Tim Horton's Field. No team in league history has ever made the playoffs after starting 0-7.
