VANCOUVER – The BC Lions will open their 2014 regular season campaign without an important trio on the offensive side of the ball.
Monday, the team placed QB Travis Lulay, as well as receivers Emmanuel Arceneaux and Marco Iannuzzi on the one-week injured list, meaning all three will be unavailable to play when the team hosts the Edmonton Eskimos on Saturday.
Lulay did not particiapte in any pre-season action, as he continues to recover from off-season shoulder surgery. It appears as though the team will be handling his situation on a week-to-week basis.
With Lulay out, expect veteran pivot Kevin Glenn to lead the Lions offence for the time being.
Both Arceneaux and Iannuzzi also didn't see much action in the pre-season. Arceneaux has been nursing a broken hand suffered early in training camp, while the Lions have not released information on Ianuzzi’s injury.
The Lions also added DL Brandon Jordan, and LB Alex Hoffman-Ellis to the one-game injured list on Monday, and added offensive lineman Cody Husband to the 6-game injured list.
