Reinforcements? Lulay set to return to practice


VANCOUVER — The B.C. Lions have taken the first step towards discovering whether there is any chance injured quarterback Travis Lulay will return for the playoffs. 

Monday, the team announced that they have placed him on the club’s 46-man roster, making him eligible to practice this week. 

The Lions take on the Montreal Alouettes in the Eastern Semi-Final on Sunday. 

Coach Mike Benevides has said whether Lulay plays or not depends on how he performs in practice, but it’s a longshot. Kevin Glenn would start should Lulay be unable to play.

Lulay hurt his shoulder on Sept. 5, his first start in almost a year after returning from a shoulder injury that sidelined him in 2013.

In two games this season, Lulay has passed for 167 yards on 22 completions. 

With Lulay sidelined for most of the season, the Lions have relied on Glenn who they accruired from the Ottawa REDBLACKS on CFL Draft night. 

While stepping in for the injured Lulay, Glenn passed for 3,910 yards, whlile completing 62.9 per cent of his passes and throwing 17 touchdowns on the season, en route to the Lions clinching a playoff berth.
