Winnipeg Blue Bombers sign one running back and release another

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers made several moves on Wednesday as they returned to the practice field for the first time since Sunday’s loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the annual Labour Day classic.The Bombers signed one running back and released another. The club added talented ball carrier Larry Rose, and released running back John Santiago.Santiago was injured in practice last week.“Unfortunately he gets nicked up in practice and we need the spot to get another guy on,” head coach Mike O’Shea said.“It’s very unfortunate. We like John Santiago and we’ll see what happens in the future, but unfortunately in those situations, you need the spot.”WATCH: Raw Mike O’Shea Media Briefing
