Winnipeg defensive end Gavin Walls will undergo knee surgery and will be lost for the season, Blue Bombers head coach Mike Kelly confirmed.
Walls will be replaced by Phillip Hunt at least for Monday’s match versus the Tiger-Cats in Hamilton.
Import linebacker Joe Lobendahn (hamstring) also did not practice today and it is expected that Barrin Simpson will replace him on Monday.
Meanwhile, an interesting new offensive lineman showed up at practice. He is Qasim Khan, the younger brother of Winnipeg centre Obby Khan.
Safety Shawn Gallant also missed practice with a burner but should be OK.
