Jeremiah Masoli will start at QB for the Ticats when they open the preseason Saturday in Toronto.
Head coach Kent Austin can’t confirm if all four quarterbacks will get into the game, saying it depends on what happens.

Longtime Argos receiver Chad Owens will make his first trip back to Toronto since joining Hamilton as a free agent in the off-season.
But Owens says he doesn’t know if he’s playing in the first CFL game at BMO Field.
Owens admits it’s going to be a little weird going back to Toronto as a visitor because he still has “brothers on that team,” but adds it is not the same “because it’s BMO and not the Rogers Centre.”
It was at the Dome where Owens burst onto the scene in the CFL.
After playing one game in Montreal in 2009, the “Flyin Hawaiian” put in stellar six seasons with the Argonauts, highlighted by winning the 100th Grey Cup at Rogers Centre in 2012.
The 34-year-old, who won the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player Award in 2012, says he is looking forward to playing on the home side at Tim Hortons Field and called Ticats fans “the best in the league.”
The Cats and Argos will kick off at 4pm Saturday, and after the game, listen to The 5th Quarter on CHML, www.900chml.com and on the CHML app.
The Hamilton Spectator is also reporting that kick returner Brandon Banks has restructured his contract and could arrive at training camp soon.
Banks is on Hamilton’s suspended list as he deals with “family issues.”
