Ross will miss 4-to-6 weeks with a lower-body injury, Darrin Bauming of TSN Radio 1290 reports.

As expected after getting hurt as a holder on a field goal attempt, Ross has been dealt with a lengthy recovery timetable. This is the second Bombers quarterback to be hit with the injury bug after starter Matt Nichols was placed on the six-game injured list with a knee injury. Rookie Bryan Bennett will likely serve as the primary backup for as long as both Ross and Nichols are out.

Ross (undisclosed) was injured in Thursday's loss to Edmonton and could be out for a while, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Winnipeg is already thin at quarterback with Matt Nichols (knee) on the six-game injured list, so the loss of Ross makes an already depleted position even worse. The quarterback was hurt when he was the holder on a field goal attempt that went awry, leaving rookie Bryan Bennett as the only insurance behind current starter Chris Streveler. The team's next game comes Friday against Montreal and the Bombers will probably be in the market for another signal caller in the meantime.

Ross will open the season in a reserve role for the Blue Bombers, according to

It seemed that Ross was the front-runner to replace the injured Matt Nichols (knee) at quarterback to start the season, but the Blue Bombers will instead go with Chris Streveler. Ross could still supplant Streveler at some point if the Blue Bombers' offense struggles, but Winnipeg shouldn't need to lean on either player for very long, as Nichols is expected back back in 4-to-6 weeks.

Ross agreed to a contract last week with Winnipeg, Declan Schroeder of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Ross will aim to win a role as the Blue Bombers' No. 3 quarterback following the release of Dominique Davis and the retirement of Dan LeFevour earlier in the offseason. The 25-year-old, who played collegiately at Coastal Carolina, spent the 2017 campaign with the Lions, attempting 12 passes while serving in a backup role behind Jonathan Jennings and Travis Lulay. The Lions released Ross from their roster earlier this month.

Ross exited Costal Carolina as the school's all-time leader in passing yards (9,918), attempts (1,174), completions (760) and touchdowns (72). He's also a formidable runner, adding a conference record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback with 19. The rookie will battle for a roster spot in training camp and could secure one if he can show anywhere near the consistency he had in college.
