Darrin Bauming   @DarrinBauming
Team-issued depth/roster as the #Bombers visit the #CalStampeders Saturday afternoon. O'Shea says he thinks Dressler is out. Foketi starts for Hardrick at RT. For Calgary, DT Micah Johnson and OL Shane Bergman are in after missing time this week.

Ed Tait   @EdTaitWFC
The #Bombers make 3 changes to their 46-man roster: on are FB John Rush, DT Brandin Bryant and WR Weston Dressler; off are RB Johnny Augustine, DB Tyneil Cooper and OL Jermarcus Hardrick. Dressler doubtful to suit up; Hardrick is on injured list

I literally don't think I've ever seen Rush do anything since he has been here. Would rather have Augustine who is faster and actually has upside

I wouldn't read much into it, I think they might just be trying to spread out game cheques among their tertiary Natl. players by rotating them on and off the P.R. throughout the season.  It puts a little more cash in their pockets, gives them some playing time and allows them time to develop, hopefully it convinces them to stay put in Wpg.

Augustine has barely seen the field.  Rush is a special teams demon.  He's not on to play offense.

I'm pretty sure I saw Rush get a couple of really monster ST tackles this year (or last?).  I made a mental note, as I thought "Rush" was a great name for FB.  That's as much as you can ask for from a ST-only NAT.

Interesting. I've watched for him (his hair makes that easy) but I've never seen much. Of course I don't expect him on offense though

WINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS ADD TO PRACTICE ROSTER

WINNIPEG, MB., August 29, 2018 -   The Winnipeg Blue Bombers announce today the club has signed international defensive end Gerald Rivers.

Rivers (6'5, 255, Ole Miss, June 22, 1990 in Avondale Estates, GA.) played four seasons in the NFL, spending time with six different NFL teams. In 2018, Rivers signed with the Edmonton Eskimos, making four total tackles in five games. Rivers spent his college career with the Ole Miss Rebels. In three seasons, Rivers had 31 total tackles and four and a half sacks in 27 games.

The club has also released National receiver Tyrone Pierre from the practice roster.

The norm seems to be placing injured players on the 6 game IR. From a fan point of view we never really know what the injury seriousness might be or how soon that player could be back.

Didn't even notice him getting nicked last week?

It would seem there will be a chance that Rivers gets activate at DE. Otherwise we may see a DI at DT this week instead of DE.

O'Shea mentioned that both Johnson and Bryant have stepped out to DE at times. The good news there is that suggests Johnson is healthy and quite likely dressing this week??

Since Gaitor is coming on the roster, have to think another DB is coming off the game AR.

Transactions Aug 30th;

WPG ADD FROM SUSPENDED INT Chris GIVENS (WR)    Wake Forest
WPG DEL  INT Chris GIVENS (WR)    Wake Forest

I wonder why Givens was removed from the suspended list now, maybe he wants to sign with the AAFL.

I believe Dominique Reed and Eric Patterson are still suspended.

The AAFL doesn't care about CFL contracts IIRC...  they will decide which team gets a player by his previous/current CFL team...

I believe they do respect CFL contracts, otherwise Trent Richardson didn't need to be released the Riders' suspended list.
