Joey Elliott will be the Winnipeg Blue Bombers starting quarterback for the remainder of the 2010 Canadian Football League season. Steven Jyles and Alex Brink were both injured in Saturday's 27-8 loss to the Toronto Argonauts which eliminated Winnipeg from playoff contention. Jyles suffered a suspected separated shoulder while Brink has a broken right collarbone. The injuries mean the Bombers need to sign two quarterbacks to play behind Elliott for Winnipeg's final two games.
Elliott, who completed eight of 16 pass attempts for 75 yards and one interception against the Argos, will start against the Edmonton Eskimos this Saturday at Commonwealth Stadium.
