After watching Friday come and go (and ultimately making liars out of all of us), the Bombers coaching staff finally revealed which players have agreed to be on the practice roster today. In no particular order, here's who is staying with the club:
Import WR Chris Davis
Import WR Jamayel Smith
Import LB Merrill Johnson
Import LB Bernard Hicks
Non-Import DB Jerry-Ralph Jules
Non-Import OL Chris Kowalczuk
No real shockers here. The Bombers struggled to catch the ball in training camp, so having a few extra bodies around could provide some pressure on the active roster. Davis was probably the biggest surprise not to make the club, while I get the feeling the coaches want to take a longer look at Smith.
In related practice roster news, Canadian receiver Scott McHenry has resurfaced on Saskatchewan's P.R. list. McHenry, a slotback from Saskatoon who starred with the U of S Huskies in the CIS, was unable to find a pass catching spot in Bombers' camp. He'll probably have a difficult time landing work with the Roughriders, too. The Green Machine is loaded with quality receivers, including SB Andy Fantuz, SB Weston Dressler, SB Chris Getzlaf, SB Jason Clermont, WR Prechae Rodriguez and WR Rob Bagg.
