Bombers make Grey Cup roster changes

VANCOUVER – As expected, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are making a couple of roster changes for Sunday’s Grey Cup game.

Receiver Kito Poblah, the highly-touted rookie who was taken with the first pick in the 2011 supplemental draft, is back on the active roster and will dress when the Bombers hook up with the B.C. Lions Sunday evening (5:30 p.m., TSN, CJOB).

Poblah, 24, will be making his first appearance since suffering a shoulder injury in the Banjo Bowl. To make room for the Central Michigan product, fellow non-import receiver Jade Etienne comes off the active roster.

Meanwhile, injured corner back Brandon Stewart (ankle) is replaced by Deon Beasley, while rookie defensive back Darrell Pasco comes off the practice roster to play special teams. Pasco will also serve as an emergency backup in the secondary.
