Milt's mum on future

It's regular-season game No. 199 for Milt Stegall today.

And considering he's 38 years old, he hardly practised this year because of knee pain and he's completing a season in which he has only 448 receiving yards thus far, the question had to be asked.

Could this be his final regular-season game?

The answer was a familiar one.

"You never know," the Bomber slotback said. "This could be everybody's last regular-season game. You never know what's going to happen when you step on the field. We'll just have to wait and see."

Stegall has 147 career touchdowns, including three this season in a reduced role. He's had one 100-yard outing in 11 matches this year, and last Sunday in Montreal he didn't make a catch in a game for only the fifth time in his career.

PIVOTAL PLAN: Kevin Glenn, who has thrown 38 touchdown balls to Stegall, joked yesterday he wouldn't be happy not being the quarterback who threw the final major to Turtle Man.

Glenn won't play the entire game today, but head coach Doug Berry couldn't pinpoint when backup Bryan Randall, promoted because of Ryan Dinwiddie's high ankle sprain, will take over.

"It might be halfway through the first quarter, it might be at half-time. I don't know when it's going to be," Berry said. "I'd like our quarterback to have some comfort. And that may not happen, because it's going to be imperative that we get to our other quarterback."

SHOWTIME! The Bombers made two more roster changes yesterday, bringing the total for today's game to seven.

Kick returner Jason Armstead will rest a sore ankle, and Canadian Michael Roberts will take a seat. Replacing them on the roster will be recently arrived defensive back Willie Byrd and cornerback Marc Beswick.

Since Armstead is out, Casey McGahee is coming on the roster to return kicks for the second time this season. He may get some looks at receiver as well, and that possibility has defensive back Stanford Samuels excited.

"Dude has been killing all year in practice," Samuels said. "No matter how much he didn't play and he wanted to play, he came to work every day and showed, 'Look, I belong on the field.'

"The depth that we have at receiver, he wasn't able to get there, and now he gets his opportunity. And man, that's when I'll get my popcorn, when offence is out on the field."

Also coming on the roster today are quarterback Timmy Chang, cornerback Robert Bean, receiver Kerry Johnson and running back Fred Reid.

The others taking a seat are quarterback Ryan Dinwiddie (ankle), defensive back Kelly Malveaux (hamstring), running back Joe Smith (knee), slotback Terrence Edwards (foot) and cornerback Willie Amos (hamstring).

LATE HITS: As is the custom these days, Winnipeg defensive co-ordinator Greg Marshall's name is already being mentioned as a possible candidate for Toronto's vacant head coaching position ... The Tiger-Cats are 3-32 on the road since the start of the 2005 season ... The Bombers would like to remind their patrons that tickets for next week's playoff game were included in this year's season-ticket package ... As of 4:30 p.m. yesterday, more than 24,000 tickets had been sold for today's tilt.
