STAR OF THE DAY
We'll give it to special teams co-ordinator Rick Campbell, who was essentially herding cats in trying to get all of the kickoff, punt, field-goal and return teams to know their roles for tomorrow night's pre-season match against Hamilton.
CATCH OF THE DAY
There was a lot of special teams work, so there wasn't a lot of team action, but Arjei Franklin made a slick, stretching grab over the middle.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
Hamilton's Kevin Glenn, who was Winnipeg's starting quarterback for four-plus seasons, is expected to get at least a quarter of action tomorrow night against his former team. Former Bomber O-linemen Dan Goodspeed and Alexandre Gauthier might also make the trip. Then there's the Hamilton coaching staff, which includes Mike Gibson, Greg Marshall and Khari Jones.
The Bombers and Edmonton Eskimos have made six trades since mid-January, including yesterday's deal that sent Willie Amos to the City of Champions for Thaddeus Coleman.
Derick Armstrong, Siddeeq Shabazz and Joe Smith (calf) are at least three veteran players who will watch tomorrow night's game from the sidelines due to various ailments. "There's a handful of guys we already know what they are," Kelly said.
Thaddeus Coleman didn't make it to Winnipeg yesterday but is expected to arrive this morning ... Kelly said on his radio show last night that holdout defensive back Lenny Walls should be in town today or tomorrow ... The Bombers tomorrow night will dress everyone who is healthy, while the Tiger-Cats are expected to bring approximately 55 players.
The Bombers will have a walk-through today at 1 p.m. in preparation for tomorrow night's 7 o'clock start against the Ticats.
