Move on, people.

There's nothing to see here.

That's how Winnipeg Blue Bombers head coach Doug Berry was talking yesterday after his starting quarterback, Kevin Glenn, got his knee examined by team doctors.

It turns out Glenn suffered a right knee strain in Saturday's win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats but will be on the field tomorrow when the Bombers conduct their first full practice of the week.

And even though Glenn doesn't know how his knee will respond to that workout, Berry said his quarterback will be good to go Sunday afternoon when the Bombers (7-3-1) take on the Toronto Argonauts (4-7) at Rogers Centre.

"He was evaluated today, and everything seems to be just as it appeared to be after the game," Berry said. "He's going to be fine."

Glenn's right knee buckled early in the third quarter of the Bombers' 34-4 trouncing of the Tiger-Cats at Ivor Wynne Stadium. Judging by how slowly he shuffled to the sideline -- with the help of two trainers, no less -- the injury certainly looked worse than it actually was.

While many Bomber fans today are no doubt breathing a huge sigh of relief knowing that the doctors didn't find any serious damage, Berry didn't sound worried at all.

In fact, he almost scoffed when asked how good he felt knowing that his star pivot was going to be OK.

"What am I going to do?" Berry responded. "I mean, it's nice to know it, but I also have a lot of confidence in our backup quarterback."

CAN MOVE OFFENCE

Yes, Ryan Dinwiddie showed on Saturday night that he can move the Bomber offence, but no backup CFL quarterback -- or starter, for that matter -- is having the type of season that the 28-year-old Detroit native has enjoyed through 11 games of the 2007 season.

Glenn leads the three-down loop in passing yards (3,286), efficiency rating (106.7) and fewest interceptions thrown (four). In addition, his 16 touchdown tosses leave him third behind Calgary's Henry Burris (24) and Edmonton's Ricky Ray (22).

The Bombers have the No. 1-ranked passing attack in the CFL at nearly 315 yards per game, and three of their receivers (Milt Stegall, Terrence Edwards and Derick Armstrong) are among the top five when it comes to receiving yards.

That momentum won't be interrupted, even though it might get some help in the form of a knee brace.

"By the time the game rolls around we could be double bracing him, but it would be just precautionary in that aspect," Berry said.

Glenn currently wears a brace on his left knee after undergoing surgery on the joint last August. The Bombers were 0-3 in the games that he either missed or failed to finish because of the surgery.

Glenn said Sunday he would have no problem wearing braces on both knees. He noted other quarterbacks who wear or have worn two braces are Indianapolis Colts pivot Peyton Manning and former CFL great Danny McManus.

The Bombers will practise today from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., but Glenn and most of the other starters will sit out, just like they normally would.
