With Saskatchewan running roughshod over everyone, and Winnipegs opponents finding plenty of success running the ball against them, it will indeed be the run game at the forefront of the Blue Bombers and Roughriders annual Labour Day Classic at Mosaic in Regina. Niklas Hjalmarsson Jersey . Quarterback Drew Willy may have a sore finger on his throwing hand, but its a pair of lineup changes in the Winnipeg trenches that could make a significant impact in the 51st Labour Day Weekend meeting between the prairie rivals. After missing last weeks 24-16 win over the Alouettes with a toe/foot injury, defensive end and promotional face of the franchise Jason Vega is a healthy omission from Winnipegs 46-man roster. "No, it will be Kashawn Fraser again," said head coach Mike OShea before boarding the bus with his team to Regina on Friday afternoon. "Kashawn played at a pretty high level in the last game - practiced at a high level all week." "A player got hurt. Another player stepped in (and) did extremely well. He let him compete again during the practice week, and Jason Vega did extremely well also, but as weve done in the past its hard to make changes to the roster when were coming off a win, right? We have a lot of depth on defence." It will be the rookie Frasers fifth dress and third start on the Bombers defensive line this season. Another change Winnipeg will make - but in the case of have-to more than choose-to - is starting an International at right guard with Canadian Patrick Neufeld recovering from an injury to his left leg suffered in the fourth quarter against Montreal. "The time that I did spend (on the practice roster), it was a humbling experience. I basically got better at what I can do. I basically got better in my technique," said Jarvis Jones, who comes off the PR to dress for his first game since starting Winnipegs final seven games of 2013 at tackle. "Its a lot different than tackle. The footwork and stuff is different... Its just your angles are different, basically. The way you leave the line. The way you attack guys, thats a little different at guard than tackle." Jones will be working to keep his quarterback protected from a fervent Roughriders pass rush that includes CFL sack-leader John Chick (12). But it was an incident in practice this week that startled many regarding the health of Drew Willy. Late in practice Thursday, Winnipegs first-year starter smacked his throwing hand on the helmet of defensive back Don Unamba and was in noticeable pain. The team took a walkthrough pace on Friday as Willy often squeezed his rarely-gloveless fist between infrequent short throws. "I just really wanted to see the most pain I could feel in the finger," answered Willy when questioned why he went without his throwing glove the day after the incident. "I plan on being out there (on Sunday). Thats really all Im going to say about it." "I was more frustrated about it because getting hurt in practice, you never want that to happen." NOTES: Even with International Jarvis Jones in for National Patrick Neufeld, Winnipeg wont have to make any ratio adjustments. They have started eight Canadians for the latter half of their season, making the seven starters this week Matt Bucknor, Teague Sherman, and Jake Thomas on defence, and Rory Kohlert, Cory Watson, Chris Greaves, and Steve Morley on offence. ... Joining Neufeld on the sidelines at practice this week was Canadian rookie O-lineman Matthias Goossen. Mike OShea says hes just "banged up." ... Also off the 46 this week is running back Paris Cotton, and linebacker Abe Kromah who came in last week for the now-returning Ejiro Kuale (shoulder). ... Canadian Louie Richardson returns following a glute injury that kept him out the last two weeks. ... Offensive lineman Dan Knapp (various), linebacker/safety Johnny Sears (hamstring/quad), and cornerback Donovan Alexander (knee) all practiced this week but remain on the one-game injured list. Jeremy Roenick Jersey . - Young and old. Chris Summers Jersey . The 49ers, 6-2 and riding a five-game winning streak following the bye week, also waived cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and activated cornerback Eric Wright from the reserve/non-football injury list. Manningham made 42 receptions for 449 yards and one touchdown in 12 games and 10 starts last season before injuring his left knee in a loss at Seattle Dec. https://www.cheapcoyotes.com/1228z-brad-richardson-jersey-coyotes.html .C. Lions signed cornerback Dante Marsh to a contract extension on Friay and released receiver Paris Jackson. HOUSTON -- Houston Texans running back Arian Foster will undergo back surgery next week and miss the rest of the season. Foster didnt practice all week after injuring his back on Houstons first series against Indianapolis last Sunday. He also missed most of Houstons previous game with a hamstring problem. Interim coach Wade Phillips said Friday that Foster had visited specialists about the problem. The Pro Bowl player gained 542 yards on 121 carries with one touchdown and had 22 receptions and another score. Ben Tate, still recovering from four broken ribs, is expected to start Sunday at Arizona. Dennis Johnson and Deji Karim, who were both signed last week, will play behind Tate. Its been a difficult season for the Texans, who previously lost star linebacker Briaan Cushing to a knee injury for the second straight year. Dale Hawerchuck Jersey. Coach Gary Kubiak suffered a mini-stroke during last weeks loss at Indianapolis, and his coaching future is uncertain. The team has said Kubiak is expected to make a full recovery. The Texans entered Sundays game against the Cardinals at 2-6 after winning the AFC South the last two seasons and posting a playoff victory each year. Foster was a key to the franchises first two post-season appearances. He has rushed for at least 1,200 yards in each of the last three seasons, including leading the NFL with 1,616 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2010. He also had 15 TDs rushing, tops in the NFL, in 2012. Foster was an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee who won the starting job in his second pro season. ' ' '
