Glenn out two to four weeks

Kevin Glenn won't be riding to the rescue of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers anytime soon.

The Bombers' starting quarterback, injured in a 26-11 loss to Hamilton here last week, had his knee scoped yesterday, and the exploratory surgery revealed a slight tear of his anterior cruciate ligament.

That puts Glenn's return another two to four weeks away -- lousy news in the wake of last night's 32-5 loss to the B.C. Lions.

"He's had prior work done on his knee before, and it's weakened," head coach Doug Berry said. "They're not going to do anything surgically to him at this point, hoping he'll be able to rehab it and be able to play again in a two-to-four week period, with a knee brace."

Given the uncertainty of all that, Berry says he'll ask GM Brendan Taman to look into acquiring another quarterback immediately.

"We're going to keep our eyes open," he said. "Given Kevin's situation, we certainly should be aware of who's out there."

Glenn went down early in the loss to Hamilton, and the Winnipeg offence hasn't been the same since.

Last night, Mike Quinn returned from injury to start against the B.C. Lions at the Stadium, but his inexperience -- it was the 32-year-old's first CFL start -- showed early and often.

Quinn completed just four of 13 passes in the first half, as it took the Bombers until into the second quarter to generate a first down.
