Lulay meeting with doctor for knee update; Buono won’t name starting QB

The B.C. Lions quarterback situation just got more intriguing.

3DownNation’s Lowell Ulrich reports a couple of key details from Monday’s practice.

Lulay meeting with a doctor to see where the health of his knee stands and figure out a ‘rep schedule’ would indicate the veteran passer is nearing full health. He threw for 1,693 passing yards and 10 touchdowns in 2017 but suffered a season-ending ACL injury on September 8 against Montreal.

Combined with the fact Lions head coach Wally Buono wouldn’t divulge his starting quarterback for Week 5 could mean there is a chance Lulay gets the call when Winnipeg visits B.C. Place on Saturday.

All 10 seasons Lulay has been in the CFL he’s played in B.C. passing for 18,858 yards, 114 touchdowns against 64 interceptions with a 63.9 completion rate and 94.2 QB rating. The 34-year-old won the CFL MOP award in 2011 while leading the Lions to a Grey Cup victory on home turf that same season.

Jonathon Jennings has struggled to begin the season, managing just 487 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in three games with the Lions at 1-2, last place in the West Division.

  1. Johnny Jennings is horrifically bad – – he’s unplayable at this point.

    If Lulay is still broken down, then BC really has no competent QB to play,

    Fajardo proved last year that’s he’s hopeless and Rick Lloyd is nowhere close to being a pro level QB.

  2. True that^^^
    If Lulay isn’t ready….we’re in deep shit with Jennings piloting the lions downward spiral. But let’s go Lions

  3. Area 51, are you a fan of the game or of the B.C. Lions? It seems like an odd way of expressing your interest in your team. Your comments don’t seem helpful or really that intelligent. What’s your suggestion? Should the Lions just bow their heads and keep losing?

      The alien hunter is a self proclaimed geniuse scout and usually states the obvious at times like he is the only one who thought of it. When a guy he dislikes has 2 or 3 good ga!es, he hides. When that player has a bad game he’s spouting off pumping his own tires because he needs that in his life. An ego that is second to none. He’s not an intelligent guy. I bet he has 3 cats and lives alone.

    Even if Lulay were to have a clean bill of health right now it would still take a couple of games for him to get integrated into the offence and be ready to start. Since the Lions are not at that stage they’re probably looking a month minimum until he can start. The best way of managing this would be to continue with Jennings until Lulay is ready. Given Jennings’ confidence level it would be worth simplifying the offence until he starts to get his some of his mojo back. Perhaps platoon Fajardo in for the odd wildcat play or a series for a change of pace to take the pressure off Jennings. At this point Buono needs to make the most of a bad QB situation.

  5. Jarious Jackson offense maybe too complicated at this point

      I’m thinking the offence should be reduced to the old school yard flag football play – “Heinz 57” (there is no set play, everyone run wild and try to get open). LOL. At this point Jennings can’t do any worse.

    Introduce a run heavy package to take the pressure off Jennings until Lulay ready to return.The short passing game is not getting it done so lean on the run to open up the pass

    Good Luck Travis. Hope you get the green light from Dr. McCormack. Love to see start by torching the Bombers like last year and then repeat 2011 all over again.

    Reading here, with airheads suggesting I don’t care about winning has made me realize I need to listen to people who know what they are talking about like on TSN 1040. I apparently do not care but the one who claims he does bashes the Lions, not constructively, and sprinkles LOLs all over. Yeah right LOL.

    Then there is another Arse who apparantly knows more than Hervey, Wally, Torey Hunter and says Ricky Lloyd is not a pro QB. Well he is good enough for the men mentioned above and I think they know one PHUCK of a lot more about assessing talent than someone sitting in front of his computer eating twinkies all day flipping back and forth between porn this site.

    So…To the few decent guys on here just trying to have civil conversations about football, GOOD LUCK. I hope you few enjoy the rest of the season and good luck to all of your teams. We can’t all win but I hope your team at least give you hope. Over and Out.

    Tsn 1040 will tell you the same thing..BC sucks again still in last place despite an “overhaul”

  9. LionsFan // July 10, 2018 at 1:57 am //

    Bombers will win again easy

    Lulay would be an improvement no doubt,just playing on one leg BUT that shouldn’t be the game to insert him…Bomber D is very good and Lulay may be an early casualty if he isn’t 110 percent…He’ll be running for his life
