It's not the most glamorous or noticeable position, but the field goal holder is an important cog in any football machine.

That's why it was interesting to see linebacker Corey Jenkins perform the role for the Blue Bombers in Friday's 15-13 win over the Toronto Argos.

Jenkins is the fourth holder the Bombers have used this season, following Jamie Stoddard, Rob Pikula and Kliff Kingsbury.

Pikula was the holder for Troy Westwood until the latter got hurt and the former had to replace him. Kingsbury became Pikula's holder, but head coach Doug Berry decided to make another change.

'SLIGHT PROBLEM'

"We were practising all week, and we just felt like Jenkins would be the better holder," Berry said. "Rob was a little bit more comfortable with Jenkins."

Pikula made two of his three attempts Friday night, including the 28-yard game-winner. His only miss, in the first quarter, was from 27 yards, and Berry said Jenkins' hold wasn't perfect.

"I'm going to say it was a slight problem," Berry said, "but the ball still should have been kicked through."

LATE HITS: The Bombers won't know the severity of DB Anthony Malbrough's ankle injury until Tuesday ... Bombers QB Kevin Glenn has gone five games without throwing an interception ... Berry said CB Robert Bean didn't play Friday because he needed one more week, both "physically and mentally" ... The mini-van that the Bombers gave SB Milt Stegall on Friday night counts against the $4.05-million salary cap.
