The Hamilton Tiger-Cats will take on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers at Canad Inns Stadium on Sunday afternoon missing one of the most important players on their roster.

Import placekicker Nick Setta suffered an undisclosed injury during practice in Hamilton on Friday and did not make the trip to Winnipeg. Rookie import Jeremy Ito, who has never dressed for a CFL game or even been to windy Winnipeg, will replace Setta on the roster, handling both the placekicking and punting duties.

The Bombers need to win Sunday to earn a playoff berth and would host the East Division semifinal Nov. 15.
