WINNIPEG - The Bombers and their fans will finally get a look at first-round draft pick Tyson Pencer.

The third overall pick in 2012 will line up at right guard on Saturday night in Edmonton when the Bombers (2-8) battle the Edmonton Eskimos (1-9) at Commonwealth Stadium.

Pencer spent most of last season on the nine-game injured list due to shoulder problems, so his practice time in the pros was limited to last year's training camp and this season. He was placed on the nine-game injured list at the start of this year, but he wasn’t hurt and continued practising. An injury to Paul Swiston means the Bombers can put Pencer on the field this weekend and see what he can do.
