Nick Moore, 17, back, had seven catches for 99 yards in last week’s victory against B.C. but a foot injury means he will miss this week's game in Hamilton.

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).
