Winnipeg – Winnipeg Blue Bombers released a pair of players off their practice roster on civic holiday Monday, sending import defensive back Travis Hawkins and import defensive end Adrian Hubbard home. Hawkins joined the Bombers a month ago and played one game while Hubbard has been with the club since training camp. The Bombers had high hopes for Hubbard, a big, athletic product of the University of Alabama. But Hubbard did not perform consistently enough in the few games he played. Rookie Shayon Green from the University of Miami and recently activated Justin Cole will continue to battle for the defensive end spot opposite where Jamaal Westerman plays.
Bombers host Hamilton Wednesday at 7-30. Milt Stegall’s name will go up on the Bombers Ring of Honor at halftime. The Broadcast on 680-CJOB begins at 6pm.
