That was a crazy week

Stefan LeFors will see the team doctor today to determine the extent of the right shoulder injury he suffered during Saturday's loss to Hamilton.

The Bomber quarterback was hurt in the second quarter of the 25-13 setback when he dived for a first down in front of the Bomber bench. Ticats middle linebacker Otis Floyd drilled LeFors, driving the right side of his body violently into the turf.

Floyd was knocked unconscious and had to leave the game, but LeFors played through the pain until midway through the fourth quarter, when backup Bryan Randall took over.

LeFors completed just seven of 19 passes for 99 yards, but head coach Mike Kelly said he was pulled because of the injury.

The good news for LeFors is the injury is to his non-throwing shoulder, but there's a chance he could miss Friday's game against the Argos.

THE DEFENCE RESTS: Winnipeg's defensive dozen forced four Hamilton turn-overs and kept the Bombers in Saturday's game as long as it could, but it was not to be.

The Ticats were on the field for 10 more minutes than the Bombers thanks to Winnipeg's offensive struggles.

"You get tired when you're out there a whole lot, but being a defensive player I want to be on the field and I want to be making plays," said linebacker Siddeeq Shabazz, who had his second straight interception return for a touchdown.

"So you look forward to helping our offence and helping the team win. We all just gotta work a little bit harder."

Hamilton also won the field position battle, thanks to Nick Setta's nearly 20-yard edge in punting average over Winnipeg's Mike Renaud (50.2 yards to 31.4).

Not helping matters was Winnipeg's punt-return woes, as Jovon and James Johnson often had trouble catching Setta's boots on the fly.

LATE HITS: Bombers head coach Mike Kelly went straight to the locker-room after Saturday's game, making no effort to shake the hand of Ticats coach Marcel Bellefeuille ... Terrence Edwards was held without a catch for the first time as a Bomber. He had at least one grab in 35 consecutive games before Saturday ... One Ticats fan had some Spygate fun on Saturday, bringing a fake movie camera to Ivor Wynne with the words "SpyCam" labelled on the side of it. The fan, who wore sunglasses, was "rolling" behind the Bomber bench just prior to kickoff ... Winnipeg returns to the practice field today at 3 p.m.
