WINNIPEG - The Blue Bombers have found a quarterback with at least some CFL experience.

The Blue and Gold on Thursday added former B.C. Lions quarterback Zac Champion to their practice roster. Champion, 26, threw only 34 passes for the Lions in 2008 and 2009, completing 12 of them for two touchdowns and four interceptions.

The former Louisiana Tech tried out for the Calgary Stampeders this year but was released at the end of training camp.

Winnipeg lost its first three quarterbacks to injury this season and will start fourth-stringer Joey Elliott on Saturday in Edmonton against the Eskimos.
