From the FP:
WINNIPEG –There's a new face at the Winnipeg Blue Bombers' practice.
Import running back Chris Garrett is at practice this morning, working out with the special teams unit.
An Ohio University product who's listed at 5-foot-8, 185-pounds, Garrett comes to Winnipeg as the school's all-time leader in kick return yards and as a first-team all-MAC selection following his 2009 season.
The elusive back had three kick-off returns for touchdowns in his college career with the Bobcats.
The Bristow, Virginia native did not go in the NFL draft and has spent some time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers over the spring/summer.
The Bombers have struggled in the kick-off return department this season, mustering only 820 total yards through nine games.
Here's a link to some highlights at YouTube:
and a link to his bio from Ohio:
He was a RB at Ohio but people who were at practice reported he was taking reps as a receiver as well as working with the kick returners (Marcus Howell was giving him tips).
