The B.C. Lions will be without starting quarterback Travis Lulay for another two weeks.
The CFL club announced Monday that Lulay will be sidelined another two weeks with a shoulder injury that has forced him to miss B.C.’s last two games.
That means backup Thomas DeMarco, who has led B.C. to consecutive road wins in Lulay’s absence, will play Friday night when the Lions (9-4) host the Saskatchewan Roughriders (8-5) in a key West Division contest.
Lulay suffered a partially dislocated right shoulder in B.C.’s 36-14 win over the Montreal Alouettes on Sept. 15.
In addition to this weekend’s game versus Saskatchewan, Lulay will miss B.C.’s showdown with the Calgary Stampeders (10-3) at McMahon Stadium on Oct. 11.
The Lions say Lulay will be re-evaluated again following that contest.
B.C. has won three straight games and cemented a playoff spot with its 53-17 victory Friday night over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
