Report: Lulay suffered separated shoulder in win over Als

MONTREAL — BC Lions quarterback Travis Lulay left Friday night’s win over the Montreal Alouettes with a left shoulder injury, the team has confirmed.

Lulay told The National Post’s Ed Willes that he suffered a separated shoulder, which often carries a four-to-six week window, though there are no guarantees.

Lulay suffered the injury early the first quarter and did not return after taking a hit from Alouettes defensive end John Bowman after releasing the football.

The 34-year-old BC pivot had completed one of two pass attempts for a 41-yard completion to Bryan Burnham, though the drive would end in a touchdown when replacement Jonathon Jennings connected with Burnham in the end zone.

Lulay was later spotted on the sideline with his left shoulder, the non-throwing one, heavily wrapped.

Jennings came on in relief and led the Lions to their first road win of the 2018 season, moving them into a playoff spot ahead of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers — though the two teams are tied in points — by virtue of their winning percentage.
