LIVESTREAM CFL Preseason: Winnipeg Blue Bombers @ Edmonton Elks, May 27, 22:00 CET (10 pm, 4 pm EDT)

The Canadian Football League preseason continues this weekend with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers visiting the Edmonton Elks at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton.

Edmonton is coming off a 29-24 loss to the Calgary Stampeders in its first pre-season game, at McMahon Stadium on Monday (May 22). For Winnipeg, this is the first preseason game of the year.

I’ll be honest, I don’t think there is much drama for the quarterback positions for these two teams. You know who the starters are going to be and the main backup for the most part, though we’ll all be watching for rookie Jarret Doege of the Elks to see if he can put together back-to-back games where he looks as poised as he did on Monday.

If Doege can do that, ok, maybe we will have some more interesting conversations about the depth chart for the Elks behind centre.

The other position I’ll want to look for is in the middle of the Bombers’ defensive line. Losing Casey Sayles isn’t great. And I know what you’re thinking. Yes, they do have Jake ThomasWillie Jefferson and Jackson Jeffcoat. But I thought Sayles was a key member of that defensive line with his versatility. I’ll be watching to see if they’ve been able to plug yet another hole with ease as the Bombers have been able to do so well.

Remember, this is the same team that lost Kenny Lawler last off-season and brought in rookie of the year sensation Dalton Schoen. Even scarier, they’re now teammates.
