BOB MACKIN -- 24 Hours Vancouver

Reciver Tony Simmons' MRI scan earlier this week was not conclusive and doctors are waiting for the swelling to subside.

He won't play tonight and could be gone four weeks. Paris Jackson's shoulder is feeling better and he did train yesterday.

Jackson slightly separated his right shoulder and Simmons jammed his right knee in Sunday's loss to the Saskatchewan.

Receivers Chris Bush and Ricky Foley are on the 46-man roster and could be among the 42 players Buono will announce an hour before game time. Meanwhile, Aaron Lockett is healthy and will handle kick returns.

Groin-injured Paul McCallum kicked Thursday and is likely to handle punting duties while Rob Pikula handles field goals. Head coach Wally Buono said McCallum is a week away from resuming all-purpose duties.

Pikula, the former University of Western Ontario Mustangs' star from Brantford, Ont., missed being McCallum's successor in Saskatchewan when ex-Simon Fraser University Clan kicker Luca Congi won the job.

Pikula was added to the Lions' roster for last week.

"I was very excited at the opportunity to come back and play," Pikula said.
