The Winnipeg Blue Bombers suffered a blow Wednesday when test results revealed Ryan Lucas will miss the entire season with a torn ACL.

The Canadian defensive tackle suffered the injury on Monday and had tests done on Tuesday. He was a potential starter on the defensive line but head coach Mike O'Shea said he wasn't even thinking about the ratio when he got the news.

“It becomes a personal issue when I lose a guy with an ACL on the first day of camp, a guy who loves football so much that he can't stand it. It's nothing about ratio.”

Lucas has had bad luck with injuries lately; he missed most of last season as well.

The 29-year-old has played five years in the league splitting time with the Blue Bombers, Montreal Alouettes, and Saskatchewan Roughriders.
