Derek Taylor   @DTonOB
Bombers move Karamoko to the practice roster and add Jeremy Murphy to the active roster (per CFL)
So Murphy will play Saturday (almost certainly).

Now to see the two 🇺🇸 players they add for Schoen & Wheatfall. My guess: LB Tony Jones & WR Myron Mitchell.

Curious to see if perhaps LB Tony Jones comes onto the roster this week. Souleymane Karamoko played 0 snaps on defense vs BC.


Game 4:

Kody back on Case for Winnipeg Blue Bombers

By 3Down Staff -July 2, 2024

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have brought back receiver Kody Case, who was released by the team during training camp.

The five-foot-ten, 182-pound target played his final collegiate season at the University of Illinois, seeing action in four games as a kick returner. He was signed by the Indianapolis Colts after going unselected in the 2023 NFL Draft but was waived following training camp.

Case spent the previous five years at the University of South Dakota where he caught 82 passes for 1,157 yards and nine touchdowns in 32 games. He reportedly ran a 4.44-second forty-yard dash at his pro day in March 2023.

The native of Lake City, Ia. caught one pass for four yards and returned one kickoff for 24 yards in preseason action with the Blue Bombers.

No sign of WR Lucky Whitehead at practice Tuesday and there's no indication of when he'll even be in Winnipeg. The team has yet to formally announce his addition, first reported by TSN's Farhan Lalji and confirmed by the receiver himself on social media Saturday after the game in Calgary.

With Kenny Lawler, Dalton Schoen and Keric Wheatfall all on the six-game injured list the Blue Bombers starting receiving corps against the Stamps consisted of veterans Nic Demski and Drew Wolitarsky, second-year Canadian Jeremy Murphy and CFL rookies Pokey Wilson and Josh Johnson. Murphy was injured in the game and replaced by Kevens Clercius.

The club did re-sign receiver/returner Kody Case, injured in camp, and added him to the practice roster this week and Myron Mitchell and Ravi Alston are also available. The receiving corps on Tuesday featured Demski, Wolitarsky, Wilson, Johnson and Clercius, with Case, Mitchell and Alston also getting reps.
FYI: Also not practising on Tuesday beside Collaros and Murphy were DB Evan Holm and OL Tui Eli while DE TyJuan Garbutt, who is on the six-game injured list, was back as a full participant... O'Shea when asked if the closes losses of late — three by a combined total of nine points — were taking a toll: "I imagine. But by toll, do you mean does it accumulate? I don't think so. They're pretty good at getting rid of it. I mean, in any contact sport, you better move on and have your focus on the task at hand or else somebody's going to whack ya. So I don't think a tight loss, or a big loss... you just can't afford to hang onto them for too long."


Game 5:
Ed Tait   @EdTaitWFC
Chris Streveler starts for the @Wpg_BlueBombers. Zach Collaros third on the depth chart behind Terry Wilson. FB Michael Chris-Ike and receiver Myron Mitchell added; off are WR Jeremy Murphy and DB Marquise Bridges

Taylor Allen  @TaylorAllen31
Chris Streveler will start his first CFL game since Oct. 19, 2019.

Zach Collaros is listed as the third-string QB as he recovers from a thorax injury.

Darrin Bauming   @DarrinBauming
Collaros listed at No. 3 on the #Bombers depth chart for Friday night vs #RedBlacks.

Winnipeg's QB1 did not practice this week (thorax... aka core/mid-body) after leaving the game in Calgary on Saturday.

Darrin Bauming   @DarrinBaumingJul 4
A pretty healthy 2-1 #RedBlacks team enters Winnipeg on Friday to face the #Bombers.

Jeff Hamilton   @jeffkhamilton
Zach Collaros will not be dressed for Friday's game vs. Ottawa. Teams need to "dress" three QBs, so he's on the depth chart.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce the club has signed American receiver Lucky Whitehead to the practice roster.

Whitehead (5-10, 177, Florida Atlantic; born: June 2, 1992, in Manassas, VA.) returns to the Bombers for a second stint after spending the past three seasons (2021-2023) with the BC Lions. Since his arrival to the CFL in 2019, Whitehead has recorded 248 receptions for 3,192 yards, 15 rushes for 118 yards, and 13 touchdowns in 58 CFL games, all starts.

In his first season with the Blue Bombers, Whitehead etched 521 yards on 52 catches and three touchdowns, 92 yards on nine rushes and one touchdown, and one kickoff return touchdown in 15 starts, ending the 2019 season as a Grey Cup champion.

His 2021 campaign with BC saw him earning CFL All-Star status after recording 60 catches for 932 yards and four touchdowns in just 12 games.

Prior to coming to the CFL, Whitehead was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Dallas Cowboys (NFL) in 2015. Over the next two seasons, Whitehead dressed for 30 NFL games, starting in two, and recorded nine receptions for 64 yards, and 20 rushes for 189 yards. He joined the New York Jets' practice roster before being released in 2018.

The team has also released American defensive end Ali Fayad.

QB1 RETURNS: Zach Collaros was back at his post on Monday after missing last week's win over Ottawa due to injury. The Blue Bombers starting quarterback took a helmet to the chest by Stampeder defensive tackle Josiah Coatney and was not able to suit up against the RedBlacks, giving way to Chris Streveler.

As expected, just one change to the Bombers roster for Friday. Lucky Ogbevoen comes on to replace Ali Fayad. (OGG-buh-voh-enn) was the Bombers 2nd round pick in this year's Global Draft.

Owen Hubert (8th round of 2024 draft) starts at DE.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers list Zach Collaros as starter vs. Calgary Stampeders

By 3Down Staff -July 11, 2024

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have listed Zach Collaros as their starting quarterback for Friday's game against the Calgary Stampeders.

The two-time CFL Most Outstanding Player missed last week's win over the Ottawa Redblacks due to a thorax injury. Before the game, head coach Mike O'Shea said Collaros was close to being ready to go but felt it was "not the right move" for him to play. He sustained the injury the week prior in Cowtown on a hit from Josiah Coatney.

The 35-year-old passer has completed 62.3 percent of his passes for 796 yards and four interceptions through four starts this season.

Canadian receiver Kevens Clercius will make his second career start at field-side wide receiver, while Canadian defensive end Owen Hubert will make his first career start at defensive end following the release of Ali Fayad. Hubert was an eighth-round pick in the 2024 CFL Draft out of McMaster University who made three tackles and one tackle for loss during last week's win in a rotational role.

Austria native Lucky Ogbevoen, who was selected in the second round of the 2024 CFL Global Draft, will dress for his first career CFL game as a depth defensive end.

This is the second and final meeting of the regular season between the Stampeders and Blue Bombers, which means the season series will be decided on Friday. Calgary won the first matchup between the two teams two weeks ago by a score of 22-19.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers (1-4) will host the Calgary Stampeders (2-2) at Princess Auto Stadium on Friday, July 12 with kickoff slated for 8:30 p.m. EDT.
