Bombers head coach Paul LaPolice said the club expects to take around 55 players to Hamilton for the second pre-season game (Sunday, noon), with injuries and veteran status dictating most of the decisions on who goes and who gets to stay.
All four quarterbacks – Buck Pierce, Steven Jyles, Adam DiMichele and Alex Brink – will make the trip.
The coach added he may make a few cuts prior to the team leaving on Saturday.
LaPolice has not made up his mind yet regarding who his No. 1 quarterback will be, adding that he’ll make that announcement early next week. He said it wasn’t important to name the No. 1 guy for the sake of taking ownership of the locker room.
"I hope all of them take ownership," he said. "They all have to prepare as a starter each day."
LaPolice confirmed that FB Daryl Stephenson, WR Jabari Arthur, WR David Ball, OL Ryan Donnelly would not be making the trip to Steeltown. A decision will be made on all other injured players later this week.
Linebackers Courtney Smith and Marcellus Bowman missed today’s practice with the flu, as did WR/KR Kenny Strickland.
The club resumes workouts at Canad Inns Stadium tomorrow (8:30 a.m. start).
