Blue Bombers

Outside of quarterback Joey Elliott getting the start, the big changes are on defence. Starting safety Ian Logan and starting defensive back Alex Suber return from leg injuries, and tackle Bryant Turner is back after attending his grandmother's funeral. The club also welcomes special teamer James Green, who makes his season debut after being released in the off-season (he suffered a broken foot during the winter). Green led the team with 17 special teams tackles last year.


Slotback Andy Fantuz (head) didn't make the trip, so that leaves a big hole in the Hamilton offence. Simon Charbonneau-Campeau should see the bulk of reps in his spot. Fantuz out also means backup quarterback Quinton Porter will handle the field-goal holding duties, which could lead to some excitement regarding possible fakes and/or muffed holds. Starting defensive back Bo Smith is also a no-go tonight.
