Bring back Justin cole.  They should have kept him on the team.

Surprised they haven't expanded the PR yet, they can go to 156 players now...

Maybe it has something to do with Westerman's injury  Roll Eyes

The bombers could move Westerman if they needed to make room for AM. He still has a few good years left in him, and he has the right passport. His injury will open up cap space, and maybe the dollars they need to sign the AM.

#55's salary for the rest of the year is available.  He is on the 6 game, no more SMS for him.  He is a FA at the end of the season, so "moving" him makes no sense at all, what team would trade for him, injured, having to pay out his not insubstantial contract without him playing one minute, and possibly losing him in FA.

As to conspiracy theories about him not being actually injured, pshaw.  Makes absolutely no sense.  He's our leading sack machine, he's a leader on field and in the room, and he loves it here.  The only downside is his penalties, but that comes with the rush end position, right Willis?

He is hurt, we will possibly hear what that injury is tomorrow.  Until then, conjecture about phantom injuries, making room for AM, or even concussions just don't make any sense.  Upper body, recovery beyond seasons end.  End story.

I wonder if it happened in practice...

It happened during the freaking Banjo Bowl.  Repeatedly confirmed.  DURING the BANJO BOWL.  That would be during the game, when they player the Riders.  While we were winning the game, he got injured.  DURING the game on Saturday September 9th.

I don't find it that odd, tbh.

Players are used to playing through injuries and they're pumped on adrenaline and probably a steady amount of painkillers. Game ends, the rush wears off and he notices something ain't right.

I agree with this, he probably jumped on a flight shortly after the game thinking it would heal and 10 days later it still doesn't feel right so they do a more in-depth medical and discover the problem.  Announcing he is gone for the season "might" indicate he requires surgery.

I know weve been lucky so far that we havent had too many injuries compared to other teams.

But that shouldnt be the reason that the Bombers should load up for theduration of the season. Walters need more bodies to PRand hide some in 6-game so that in case of injuries (knock on wood) they have players ready to step up.

If you think the guy is first round talent, you bid for him.  And you get him a year early. 

If the draft pool seems shallow for the following year, even more so.

Its the draft.  Woulda/coulda/shoulda reigns supreme.  "Shoulda drafted Lamar Durant, Calgary is so smart for drafting him"... etc..

1    Saskatchewan Roughriders    Josiah St. John    OL    Oklahoma
?    Winnipeg Blue Bombers    Forfeit pick[20]
2    Montreal Alouettes    Philippe Gagnon    OL    Laval
3    Hamilton Tiger-Cats (via BC[7])    Brandon Revenberg    OL    Grand Valley State
4    Toronto Argonauts    Brian Jones    WR    Acadia
5    BC Lions (via Hamilton[7])    Charles Vaillancourt    OL    Laval

These were the other players taken ahead of Singleton...   

oh, and guess who we picked that year in the third round?  Guy you might have heard of, Taylor Loffler.
