Del Norte High graduate and Winnipeg Blue Bombers (Canadian Football League) quarterback Buck Pierce finds himself in an unfortunately familiar position - out with an injury.

Pierce left Winnipeg's 35-19 loss to the Toronto Argonauts on July 19 with an abdominal injury. Prior to his exit, he had completed 10 of 14 passes for 139 yards, with an interception. He also rushed twice for seven yards.

The Bombers (1-3) continue their season Friday at home against the Calgary Stampeders. Justin Goltz will start at quarterback for Winnipeg.
