WINNIPEG - It doesn’t look like the Bombers will be making many changes to their roster for Thursday night’s battle against the Edmonton Eskimos at Investors Group Field.

Both teams are 3-0 and are tied for the West Division lead. The Bombers will be able to field the same lineup that edged the Montreal Alouettes 34-33 on Friday night, because head coach Mike O’Shea this afternoon reported no new injuries from that contest.

Slotback Cory Watson (hamstring), left guard Cory Watson (knee) and safety Moe Leggett (ankle) are unlikely to remain out this week, but there’s a chance defensive tackle Zach Anderson (heel) and backup linebacker Rene Stephan (calf) could return.

O’Shea said left guard Cordaro Howard, who started in place of Greaves but took three illegal procedure penalties, will keep his starting spot against Edmonton.
