TORONTO -- Tuesday was a busy day across the country as numerous teams tinkered with their lineups as they prepare for Week 13. Here is a breakdown of some of the more notable activity.
Perhaps the biggest news of the day came out of Regina where it was announced that Kory Sheets would miss Saskatchewan’s matchup against BC on Sunday. His replacement hasn’t been decided on yet but Neal Hughes, who subbed in admirably against Toronto, will likely not take the majority of the reps. That role will probably go to one of Jock Sanders or former Blue Bombers running back Chris Garrett.
In Calgary, it was reported that Kevin Glenn is likely to start on Saturday when the Stampeders host the Toronto Argonauts. Glenn has been relegated to backup with an injury since Labour Day and Bo Levi Mitchell has gone 2-0 in his absence.
Speaking of the Argonauts, they continue to juggle around pieces due to injury – mostly due to their two Chads. Chad Owens is “doubtful” according to head coach Scott Milanovich as he recovers from injured ribs.
Chad Kackert meanwhile, is “day-to-day” after sustaining a hit from Roughriders safety Tyron Brackenridge on Saturday that saw him leave the game.
The Argos also added their seventh overall pick from the 2011 CFL Draft, Tyler Holmes, after he spent time with the Minnesota Vikings. As a result, they released OL Joel Reinders.
In Winnipeg, it seems as though Max Hall will get another shot to take over the reins of the Blue Bombers offence as Justin Goltz completed just 5 of 10 passes for 54 yards against Edmonton last week.
In Tigertown, Luca Congi will sit out this week’s contest in Moncton against the Alouettes as Kent Austin tries to get a boost in the kicking game. Congi missed two field goals last week in a tight contest in Calgary, leading the way for rookie Brett Lauther. The Saint Mary’s product was Hamilton’s seventh round pick (53rd overall) in the 2013 draf.
Out to British Columbia where the Lions got an update on their quarterback, Travis Lulay. He will miss two weeks with a shoulder injury. The Lions didn't announce who will start in his place, but it's expected to be DeMarco. Last week, DeMarco completed 4 of his 6 passes for 47 yards and a touchdown - the first of his CFL career.
Over in Edmonton, CFL.ca's Dave Campbell tweeted that DB Chris Rwabukamba will not play Friday against Winnipeg because of a knee injury. Eric Samuels will likely patrol the wide-side corner spot.
In Montreal, RDS' Didier Ormejuste tweeted that it's very possible QB Tanner Marsh will be forced to miss Saturday's game against the Tiger-Cats because of a thumb injury. Josh Neiswander would start in his place.
