HAMILTON - Henry Burris is back.

The veteran quarterback will face his former Hamilton teammates for the first time Saturday night when the expansion Ottawa Redblacks visit the Tiger-Cats.

Burris, 39, spent two seasons in Hamilton, leading the Ticats to the Grey Cup final last year.

But the Ticats released Burris in the off-season after signing quarterback Zach Collaros as a free agent.

Burris then signed with Ottawa as a free agent and last weekend led the Redblacks (1-2) to their inaugural victory, an 18-17 win over Toronto at TD Place.

Hamilton (0-3) will start Dan LeFevour at quarterback as Collaros continues to recover from a concussion.

The game was originally supposed to be the opener at the new Tim Hortons Field, but instead will be played at Ron Joyce Stadium on the campus of McMaster University due to construction delays.
