Glenn rests, but he's OK: Daley

Backup quarterbacks Stanley Jackson and Tee Martin took all the turns at practice yesterday, while Kevin Glenn rested a shoulder he hurt in B.C. on the weekend.

But head coach Jim Daley says Glenn will start against Hamilton here Friday.

"He's fine," Daley said. "It's just precautionary."

Receiver Kamau Peterson (knee) didn't practice either, meaning he'll likely join receiver/DB Markus Howell, receiver Derrick Smith and linebacker Terry Ray on the sidelines.

However, Wes Lysack, acquired in the Khari Jones trade, is expected to see his first action as a Bomber, starting at safety.

Stephen Fisher could also be inserted for DB Markese Fitzgerald.

WHERE'S THE BLITZ? Here's Daley on why the Bomber defence doesn't blitz more.

"Being a blitz team needs experience and practice from Day 1 of training camp. Because if you don't affect the quarterback, it's six points."

Daley says the Bombers have focused more on coverage this season, a scary thought, given their performance in the secondary much of the year.

As for his DB's, Daley was trying to sell the idea they were at least close to making some plays against B.C.'s receivers.

"We had at least five plays where, if we just could have made a finish, we negate a touchdown or a drive," he said, pointing to Ricky Bell's near miss on a Jason Clermont touchdown. "You couldn't ask for much better coverage than Ricky had on that TD. Now we have to ask for a better finish."

"REPLAY" RETURNS Receiver/running back Keith (Replay) Stokes took a regular turn on offence, suggesting he'll be used for more than kick returns this week.

Daley says a nagging ankle injury prevented Stokes from practising offence last week.
