Injuries sideline Bombers Vega and Kuale

  • Print

Injuries are forcing two defensive changes for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for this Friday’s CFL home game against the Montreal Alouettes.

Bombers head coach Mike O’Shea confirmed after practice today that defensive end Jason Vega and linebacker Ejiro Kuale are both out this week.

"Yes, Kuale, much to his dismay, is not going this week," O’Shea said. "So Abe Kromah will step in and give us everything he’s got."

Kromah was acquired earlier this season in a deal with Hamilton. He has played one game since breaking his leg while playing with Saskatchewan during the 2012 campaign.

Kuale’s sidelined with back issues.

Vega will be absent because of a foot problem, likely bringing Kashawn Fraser from the injured list into his spot.

"He’s coming along. I believe he could go but I’m going to hold him out for a week," O’Shea said of Vega. "I would like him to be 100 per cent, whatever that is in Week 9 or 10."
