Pierce, who won't be playing at all in Hamilton, ran only three series Wednesday, failed to complete a pass and almost got sacked before he was yanked. Keeping him healthy is one of the top priorities of the Bombers this season.
He says he also got a little talking to from offensive co-ordinator Gary Crowton for running the ball on his first play.
"He said, 'Buck, what are you doing? That's the first play of the pre-season and we're doing everything to protect you and you're doing that?"'
Pierce said he apologized.http://www.tsn.ca/cfl/story/?id=425499
This is a surprise, usually you want your starters ready to go for the first regular season game ! I guess Buck took a hit in the first Pre season game and looked a little shaken up !http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQZqJ_-WAO8
