Elliott to start again for Bombers
Winnipeg, MB (Sports Network) - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers will once again have Joey Elliott under center for their upcoming game.
The Free Press reported that sources indicate normal starter Buck Pierce has not been medically cleared to play, after suffering a hard hit to the head in a September 29 game against the Toronto Argonauts. Pierce was diagnosed with a concussion and did not return to action in that 29-10 win.
Elliott earned offensive player of the week honors after going 17-of-25 for 335 yards and three touchdowns in a 27-22 Thanksgiving Day win at Montreal.
Winnipeg (4-10) hosts Calgary (8-6) on Saturday.
