Injury bug bites Alouettes
Just four days remain until the Alouettes host the Argonauts in the East final. Als linebacker Shea Emry, a double nominee for the CFL player awards , says staying on Argos receiver Chad Owens, the Eastern finalist for the CFL’s most outstanding player, will be his number one priority on Sunday.
“He’s obviously a good football player, he’s a nice guy, he played here, i’m friends with the guy. So for me, I wouldn’t consider him public enemy number one, I just want to him as hard as I can and knock the ball out.”
Injury update: Als safety Kyries Hebert limped off the practice field today, but insists it wasn’t a left ankle sprain...it was a bug bite.
“Nah, I think it’s some ants or something. Something bit me. But I think i’ll be fine. Ya, get some Neosporin and I’ll be ok”
He was joking...but the team hopes the injury is not serious and that he will be able to play Sunday. Hebert had 48 defensive tackles and led the CFL in special teams tackles with 28 this season.
Running back Victor Anderson, out with a concussion in the final month of the season, was back practising but won't be ready to play on Sunday. And although linebacker Rod Davis was expected to be back this weekend, coach Trestman has now ruled him out for the rest of the post-season.
