The B.C. Lions will have to get by without starting quarterback Travis Lulay for at least two more weeks.
The football club announced this morning (September 30) that Lulay’s injured throwing shoulder will keep him on the sideline for key divisional showdowns with Saskatchewan on October 6 and in Calgary on October 11. At that point, Lulay will be re-evaluated by team doctors to get a better sense of whether he’ll be able to rejoin the team for the stretch drive and the playoffs.
Lulay injured his shoulder in a collision in a September 15 victory over the Montreal Alouettes.
In his absence, back-up Thomas DeMarco and the Lions have recorded road victories in Saskatchewan and Winnipeg.
The Lions are 9-4 on the season and sit second in the CFL West one win back of Calgary and one victory in front of Saskatchewan. They remain in the hunt for top spot, but the task of winning the division will be tough with Lulay on the shelf for at least two more games.
