Glenn now uncertain

Right after last Saturday's loss in Vancouver, Kevin Glenn insisted he was going to play in Sunday's East Final in Toronto.

Yesterday, the Blue Bomber quarterback, suffering from a sprained ankle, wasn't so sure.

"I'm walking on it," Glenn said, as the Bombers held team meetings, but no practice.

"But I haven't done anything outside. We'll have to see when practice starts. I'm putting pressure on it now. But I haven't done any drills or anything. We'll have to see how that goes."

BETTER TEST

Glenn will give the ankle a better test today, as the Bombers get back on the field to prepare to face the Toronto Argonauts.

It'll be Winnipeg's first playoff game in three years, and, if he plays, Glenn's first time leading a team into the post-season.

"I expect to do stuff in practice to test it," he said. "I don't want to go out there and hinder the team. I want to be able to put the team in a position to win."

On the bright side, Glenn says the injury isn't as bad as the ankle sprain that kept him out of a couple of games last season.

"It was a high ankle sprain, so it was much different than this," he said.

"I couldn't put any pressure on it the day after ... so it was a lot different injury than last year."

Head coach Doug Berry says he'll give Glenn at least a couple of days to see how much he can and can't do.

"Toronto plays that different coverage package and we'd like to get the quarterback to get the live read of that," Berry said. "But Kevin's played them a couple of times before and understands what we need to do to have an effective game plan against them, and could get away with one day practice, maybe."

If Glenn can't play, backup Brad Banks will get the call.

Berry says he's still unsure about defensive lineman Doug Brown's shoulder injury, too.

The coach says Brown could also get by with little practice this week.

CUP UPDATE: Ticket sales for the 94th Grey Cup game passed the 41,050 mark yesterday. That leaves nearly 4,000 tickets unsold for the Nov. 19 contest.
