The Argos began their preparations for the CFL East semi-final with the expectation quarterback Kevin Glenn will be calling plays for the Blue Bombers.

And in Winnipeg, this weekend's visitors did the same yesterday.

Glenn, who sprained his ankle in a loss to the B.C. Lions on Saturday, was back in action as the Bombers had their first full practice of the week.

"It feels all right," Glenn told reporters after working out on the Bombers frozen field. "I'm going to take precautions. I'm not going to go full out on the first day."

Glenn said he could do everything he intended in practice and that he fully expects to make the first playoff start of his CFL career.

"Nothing could keep me out on Sunday, honestly," said Glenn, who was 9-5 in games he started and finished this season while the Bombers were 0-4 without him.

HONOUR ROLL

A total of 11 Argos were named to the CFL's East Division all-star team. Offensive honours went to slotback Arland Bruce, guard Jude St. John and tackles Bernard Williams and Jerome Davis.

Defensive selections were defensive end Jonathan Brown, linebacker Kevin Eiben, defensive back Kenny Wheaton, cornerbacks Byron Parker and Jordan Younger and safety Orlondo Steinauer. Kicker/punter Noel Prefontaine was named to the squad on special teams.

MILES AND MILES

The Argos are hopeful Tony Miles will return to the lineup Sunday although the team's No. 2 receiver didn't practice yesterday. "I'm not really commenting on Tony's condition at this point," coach Michael (Pinball) Clemons said.

ODDS ARE

Despite losing two of their three regular-season meetings, the Argos have been established as 31/2-point favourites Sunday by league sponsor and on-line betting service Bowmans. The over/under total for the game is 43.

In the West semi-final, host Calgary is a seven-point pick over Saskatchewan.
