Report: Lions expect Lulay to miss 4-6 weeks

The Canadian Press

VANCOUVER — According to TSN’s Farhan Lalji, injured BC Lions quarterback Travis Lulay should be back in four to six weeks.

Lulay suffered what’s believed to be a separated shoulder in Week 14. He suffered the injury early the first quarter and did not return after taking a hit from Alouettes defensive end  John Bowman“> 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“> 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.
