Kevin Glenn is going to do all he can to be back in the Winnipeg Blue Bombers lineup on Thursday night against the B.C. Lions.

The starting quarterback left last night's game against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, a 26-11 loss, early in the second quarter and didn't return.

The early diagnosis is a strained MCL. Glenn injured his ACL during his college career, but he doesn't think it's as serious as that.

"It's not that deep, so hopefully I'll get in (today), do some rehab, " Glenn said. "I'm gonna fight to get back next week."

Bombers head coach Doug Berry was happy with his team's physical effort after Glenn's departure, but he couldn't say the same about the mental aspect.

"We were making so many mistakes tonight, and it wasn't through lack of effort," said Berry. "To me it was the concentration level and the commitment to be perfect (that was lacking)."

TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES: The Bombers caught a break late in the third quarter when referee Bud Steen couldn't review a challenge because of audio problems between the field and the replay booth.

Ticats returner Corey Holmes fumbled a punt return toward the sideline, and the officials ruled that Bombers linebacker Barrin Simpson was the last to touch the ball before it went out of bounds.

Hamilton coach Ron Lancaster challenged the play, but Steen ruled that the play couldn't be reviewed.
