SURREY, B.C. -- Quarterback Joey Elliott is returning to the B.C. Lions.

He was added to the CFL team's roster today in preparation for Sunday's game against the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Regina.

His return follows Tuesday's announcement that B.C. starting quarterback Travis Lulay will miss the next two games with a shoulder injury.

Elliott is the second former quarterback to return to the team recently, following Buck Pierce's return via trade from Winnipeg last week.

The Lions released Elliott earlier this month before acquiring Pierce. Prior to his release, Elliott served as B.C.'s third-string quarterback, but did not see any action.

Elliott passed for 2,101 yards to go along with five touchdowns and 12 interceptions with Winnipeg last season.
