Lucky Whitehead@Luck2fastt
Surgery postponed


Looks like he shouldn't have been back out on the field...

That sucks for the guy. Today's reports are that he'll be out 2 - 4 weeks. Not sure how believable that might be if he hasn't had surgery yet. We'll see how this pans out for him.

Lions didn't land D. Williams so they'll need somebody to get healthy from the IR or activate a PR player. D. Rhymes is the only possibility I see but he may not be healthy before their next game?

2-4 *after* surgery?  On a hand?  That sounds optimistic...

I agree. 2-4 weeks if you work in an office. Catching passes with some zip on them and taking hits, probably more like 6-8 weeks.

Yeah, that was more PR than fact IMO. Quite likely he'll miss the rest of the regular season if not the entire season. He hasn't even had the surgery yet and that might be a week or two down the road.

I was looking forward to watching him play against other teams in 2021.

For all the nay sayers and guys who said pass on Posey, the Lions did the obvious? signed a former grey cup mvp and made their club instantly better in the process. Well duh.......

So sask got better, and B.C. got better and our best receiver gets suspended for dui, great week so far!!!

One game against the new doormats of the CFL Edmonton? REALLY MAN?! I think the Bombers can survive for one game. Still have our trigger man at QB, great running back and o-line and ferocious defence. More than one game would be a different story, but Bombers play Edmonchuk twice in a row. Adams, Bailey and Demski alone can carry the load if they need to short term.

Sask's guy still needs to clear protocols and quarantine coming up from the USA before he can play I believe. Just can't slot him in immediately. So he won't play this weekend I imagine unless he gets preferential treatment or is fully vaxxed.
Duke was good before, but is he still? Did not come up for pocket change I imagine.
 

Posey? We shall see. Can't stick with Hamilton who had Addison out, maybe wants big coin. You are ASSUMING a lot about players that have not even played this season in the CFL. Still a lot of if's.

Even Roosevelt, what does he really have left in the tank? Adequate fill in at best is my guess.

I guess the upside to this week is ya, we play Edmonton and will crush them with or without whomever in our lineup. They are simply awful.

With Harris starting QB Rattle him early and often and he?ll get happy feet then could be pick offs galore.

This team has too many vets to let this upset the apple cart. Keep your eyes on the prize always and focus on that.

After watching the Bombers since I was 8 years old (62 years ago) I have come to never underestimate ANY teams ability to defeat us.   We are number one at the moment and Edmonton is dead last and yes it's easy to bet on the Bombers at home.    The bookies will likely give the Bombers a fairly wide point spread and the Elks are experiencing inter strife at the moment for various reasons.    This game is crucial for them in terms of playoff hopes and Harris can rack up points with his arsenal of capable receivers.   Fighters are most dangerous when on the ropes and the Elks season is just that....on the ropes.    Do I think we will win?   Yeah....but we still have to play the game.

All completely valid points! But OSH will not let guys go into a game where they think they have won it already. Plus we have a veteran laden group.

Ok. Settle down. We've lost numerous games like this under MOS. Including this season against Toronto.

But yeah, we got this.
