The upshot is that Nathan Friesen is more of a running threat at quarterback for the 1-2 Bisons. Alberta is not without its own problems under centre -- starter Quade Armstrong is injured and his replacements threw six interceptions last week -- so Manitoba should be fine. The emphasis is on the should be, since this is a team which just lost 28-0 at home.
Injury a big concern; Bisons QB hurt during sack (Winnipeg Sun)
