Back to Work: Training Camp Day 10

  • Print

Two days removed from an encouraging pre-season game, this morning's practice was less than kind to a few Blue Bombers players. So inconsistent was the offence during work against the defence, head coach Paul LaPolice threatened to shut things down and start practice all over again. This was a couple hours into the four-plus hour session.

The Bombers had a scare when DE Odell Willis got tripped up rushing the quarterback and rolled into the legs of quarterback Steven Jyles. The pivot was slow to get up, and was limping around after the hit, but he returned and resumed his position in the QB rotation. Given the way the team looked at times this morning, having Jyles avoid injury was the best news of the day.

JANUARY UPDATE: The word on LT Glenn January is not good. According to LaPolice, the personable lineman has a torn pectoral muscle. His recovery timetable remains in question. January suffered the injury in the first Bombers series of Winnipeg's 34-10 win over Montreal Sunday. The team wasn't sure if January would need surgery to repair the muscle. LaPolice said the injury doesn't change the way the coaches will look at the hogs they have in camp, nor will it force them to go out and find another O-lineman.

WALKING WOUNDED: DB Jovon Johnson (knee), DB Nick Kordic (concussion), OL Ryan Donnelly (knee), WR Travis Shelton (hamstring), WR David Ball (hamstring), FB Daryl Stephenson (hamstring). FB Jon Oosterhuis did not participate in the workout and should be back on the field Wednesday.

NEW BLOOD: Receiver Jamayel Smith joined the Bombers for the workout this morning, and according to LaPolice, he's picking up things fairly quick. "For a guy who really didn't have any meeting time, he just jumped into lines and was able to runs some of the concepts -- so I was pleased with that," the coach said. Smith, a 6-foot, 189-pound Mississippi State product who spent the 2009 season with the New York Sentinels of the UFL, joins a Bomber receiving corps which now totals 14 players.

WHO WAS GOOD: WR Willie Foster had his best day of camp, snagging more than a few balls in tight traffic; DB Keyou Craver and LB Ike Charlton had picks for the defence. Craver's was especially impressive -- climbing the ladder to take one away from the hands of WR Adarius Bowman. When both players crashed down to the turf, a helmet-less Craver had the ball and was headed for the end zone. Bowman was left clutching Craver's bucket.

ON TAP: The team resumes workouts Wednesday, starting at 8:30 a.m.
