Bombers tailback Charles Roberts spent his bye week at his in-laws' cottage in Minnesota fishing and golfing, but he's back and focused on making history.

Roberts needs 157 rushing yards to move past the legendary Leo Lewis and into first place on the Bombers' all-time list.

Blink has rushed for at least 100 yards in each of his last four games against this Friday's opponent, the Toronto Argonauts. That includes a 176-yard performance in October 2005.

Roberts would love for the record-breaking run to happen at home.

"At least I could get some fans to clap probably if I got it at home," he said.

"It'd be definitely better. I think a lot of fans are looking forward to the record being broken also."

LATE HITS: Head coach Doug Berry almost took a day off during the bye week. "I did take one day, Thursday, but I ended up coming in here for five minutes," he said. "So I couldn't stay away for one day." ... DB Kelly Malveaux was hoping to witness the birth of his second child, a baby girl, during the bye week, but no dice. "She's being stubborn," Malveaux said ... Berry expects to see Rocky Butler at quarterback for the Argos on Friday, even though Michael Bishop (wrist) has resumed practising.
