Glenn sore about getting hook

JIM BENDER -- Winnipeg Sun

Kevin Glenn was still seething a full half after being replaced Saturday night.

Although the starting Winnipeg quarterback appeared to have suffered an injury late in the first half, Glenn was still wondering why he got yanked.

"I don't have an injury," he said in the locker room after the Blue Bombers were bombed 41-1 by B.C. in a CFL match before 29,780 fans at B.C. Place late Saturday. "My elbow was hurtin' a little bit but the reason why I got pulled out, you've got to ask the coaches that."

Backup Russ Michna replaced Glenn, who had completed only nine of 18 passes for 95 yards, with one interception.

"(Glenn) got a little hit on the head on the third-last play (of the first half) and the score being 24-0 at the point, we just said all along that if the score left us in a situation where we could take a look at Russ, we would, so we gave Russ the second half," explained head coach Jim Daley.

Michna completed only seven of 17 passes for 77 yards with two picks. Although Daley did consider trying Tee Martin late in the game, he decided against it because the third-stringer had taken no snaps with the starting offence last week.

INJURY UPDATE: Both Matt Sheridan and Aaron Fiacconi suffered knee sprains on the same play against the Lions. In fact, they sort of locked knees. Sheridan had to be carted off the field while Fiacconi never missed a play, Daley said. Both injuries will be updated today or tomorrow. But that could mean that Marc Parenteau could dress as a backup with Dan Gyetvai likely to start ... Rookie DE Gavin Walls suffered a torn hamstring while P Jon Ryan suffered a sprained ankle and is doubtful to play against Calgary here this Sunday. If Walls cannot play, Antwone Young would replace him while placekicker Troy Westwood can also punt ... RB Charles Roberts stubbed a toe and suffered a charleyhorse but should be OK ... GM Brendan Taman is now beating the bushes to find injury replacements.

DASTARDLY DAVE: Roberts, by the way, credited B.C. defensive co-ordinator Dave Ritchie, the ex-Bomber head coach, for shutting down the Winnipeg offence.

"We weren't able to do nothin' and coach Ritchie, I guess, got the guys prepared," he said. "He wasn't going to let what happened to them the first time we (beat them 44-23) happen again."

Roberts was held to just 43 yards on nine carries.

"It's very embarrassing," he said of the whipping. "A high school team probably could have done better out there."
