Buck Pierce to miss final Bombers game with shoulder injury Add to ...

Buck Pierce has played his last game this season for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

He injured his shoulder and heads a long list of players hurt in Saturday’s rain-soaked 28-18 loss in Hamilton.

With the loss, Winnipeg has no chance to make the playoffs but will play one more game this weekend at home against Montreal.

Interim head coach Tim Burke says it’s also uncertain whether No. 1 backup Joey Elliott can start since he banged up his knee Saturday.

The Bombers will also be without their two best running backs — Chad Simpson and Will Ford — and receivers Terrence Edwards and Isaac Anderson.

At this point, they don’t expect Johnny Sears to play either, which once again opens a hole at strong-side linebacker.
