The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have listed American receiver Rasheed Bailey as a game-time decision ahead of the West Final.

The 29-year-old pass-catcher was limited in practice on Wednesday with a knee injury but was a full participant on Thursday. However, Bailey did not practice at all on Friday and was officially listed as doubtful for the contest.

The Delaware Valley product had his best season as a Bomber in 2022, finishing third on the team with 63 receptions for 729 yards and nine touchdowns. In three seasons with the team, Bailey has played in 37 regular season games and recorded 134 catches for 1,564 yards and 14 scores.

Should Bailey be unable to go, Canadian backup Brendan O’Leary-Orange and American kick returner Janarion Grant could see increased action on offence. The team could also elect to call up converted running back Greg McCrae from the practice roster, who recorded 16 catches for 164 yards and a touchdown in eight appearances this season while adding 21 carries for 164 yards.

The Bombers (15-3) will play host to the B.C. Lions (12-6) in the West Final on Sunday, November 13 at 4:30 p.m. EST.
