Edwards forgets that he'd forgiven

It appears the embers are still hot when it comes to the Terrence Edwards-Shea Emry situation.

Emry, the middle linebacker for the Montreal Alouettes, was fined $750 last month after delivering a vicious hit on the Bomber slotback as the latter ran a crossing pattern away from the play.

Edwards was knocked unconscious, suffered a concussion and missed two games.

Edwards said any hard feelings he had towards Emry had passed -- until he talked to his former teammate, Calgary Stampeders receiver Romby Bryant, a couple of weeks ago.

"I had forgiven (Emry), but some stuff got back to me after (Montreal) played Calgary," Edwards said. "He told Romby that if he came across the middle, he was going to knock him out like he did me.

"That's what I was told. And if he did say it, I don't have anything to say to him."

Emry and Edwards will be on the same field tomorrow, at Montreal's Molson Stadium (noon, TSN), for the first time since the controversial hit. Emry missed last week's game in Winnipeg, coincidentally due to a concussion.

MAKING MOVES: The Bombers (7-9) will make four roster changes for tomorrow's critical clash with the Alouettes (13-3).

In are defensive tackle Michael Landry, receiver Otis Amey, defensive end Justin Shaw and cornerback Brandon Stewart. Out are receiver Adarius Bowman (knee), defensive tackle Dorian Smith, safety Nick Kordic (hamstring) and defensive end Chase Ortiz.

Smith is taking a breather because he has "hit a wall a little bit," according to head coach Mike Kelly.

Amey will replace Bowman, who is expected to be back for next Sunday's second-place showdown against Hamilton.

Luke Fritz will start at right guard in place of Ryan Donnelly (knee), who didn't practise all week but will dress as the sixth man.

Kelly said Donnelly at less than 100% is a better option right now than healthy young backups like Qasim Khan or Ryan Ackerman.

AND WE QUOTE: "The bottom line is we have to continue to win games in order to gain respect that we really haven't been shown yet."

-- Mike Kelly

LATE HITS: Regardless of how Hamilton (7-9) does against Saskatchewan today or Winnipeg does tomorrow, next week's game between the Bombers and Ticats will be for second place in the East Division ... The Alouettes tomorrow may dress former Bomber cornerback Stanford Samuels for the first time this season ... Anthony Calvillo will start at quarterback for the Als.
