Bomber VP Joe Mack says Buck Pierce is out indefinitely.

“We received confirmation late yesterday evening that Buck has sustained torn ligaments and a torn muscle in his left foot as a result of Friday’s game,” he said in a statement posted on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ website.

“Buck will be in a walking boot for at least the next week and we  have full confidence he will do everything in his power to be back on the field as quickly as possible.”

Pierce was injured in Friday’s game against the Edmonton Eskimos. Backup QB Alex Brink will play in Wednesday’s game.
