Winnipeg Blue Bombers starting receiver Nick Moore will be on the shelf for this week’s CFL game in Hamilton against the Tiger-Cats.
Moore will miss Thursday’s game with a foot ailment.
He had seven receptions for 99 yards in last week’s victory against B.C. and has 22 catches for 320 yards so far this season.
"Thankfully we’ve got Aaron Kelly to step in and the chemistry he was developing with Drew Willy (was good)," coach Mike O’Shea said today. "Aaron’s going to make sure we don’t miss anything."
Kelly missed last week’s game in B.C.
O’Shea also provided a further injury update today, declaring defensive lineman Jason Vega a player this week. Vega missed Monday’s practice.
Defensive lineman Kashawn Fraser and offensive lineman Dan Knapp are both out this week.
The 4-1 Bombers and 1-3 Ti-Cats meet at Ron Joyce Stadium on the campus of McMaster University at 6 p.m. on Thursday (TSN).
