Injured Bombers want to play

Kevin Glenn says he'll be good to go for the East Division semifinal.

The jury is still out on Doug Brown.

The hulking Bombers defensive tackle suffered what is believed to be a rotator cuff injury in the second quarter of Saturday's 26-16 loss to the B.C. Lions.

Brown will undergo therapy and more tests today to determine the extent of the injury.

He tried to go back in the game on Saturday night, but he knew his shoulder wasn't right.

"I was just having a hard time regaining full strength or arm function, so we just wrapped it up for the day," Brown said.

He, like Glenn, plans to do everything possible to be on the field Sunday in Toronto.

"We'll pull out all the stops, obviously," Brown said. "I would imagine I'll be able to (play)."

QUESTIONABLE HIT? Glenn suffered his ankle injury when Lions defensive end Chris Wilson hit him low after the quarterback released his first pass attempt of the game.

Glenn winced on the plane yesterday when he saw a replay of the hit for the first time, and he believes it should have been a penalty.

"I don't think the guy's a dirty player," Glenn said. "It was just one of those things that happened. It was a late hit, so I do think a flag should've been thrown, but I don't get treated like ... they just didn't throw the flag."

RECORD WATCH: Bombers slotback Milt Stegall failed to find the end zone Saturday night, which means he ends the season with 136 career touchdowns, one shy of the CFL record.

"(The Lions) were doing some things, but nobody (on offence) did much, so it didn't matter," said Stegall, who had two catches for 17 yards.

Stegall will have to return for another season if he's going to get the record, but he's not saying yet whether that will happen.

BY THE NUMBERS: Bombers kick returner Albert Johnson III had the second-most combined yards in the CFL this season after racking up 210 return yards on Saturday night. Bombers running back Charles Roberts, who won his second straight rushing crown with 1,609 yards, finished first in the CFL with 2,020 combined yards ... Winnipeg was 0-4 in games that Glenn missed or failed to finish this season ... Chris Brazzell, with three catches for 40 yards and a touchdown, was Winnipeg's top receiver against the Lions ...Roberts has 781 rushing yards and seven touchdowns in his last six games against the Argos.
