The injury bug has already bitten the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
Centre Jeff Keeping will be out eight weeks with a knee injury, according to head coach Mike O'Shea.
The 11-year veteran, who signed with the Blue Bombers as a free agent this season, has spent most of his career with the Toronto Argonauts.
The Western product was a CFL All-Star in 2013.
The Blue Bombers open the season at home to the Montreal Alouettes on June 24.
Also, wide receiver Addison Richards is likely to miss the season opener with a hand injury.
The Bomber's OL has been its greatest enemy for a few seasons, but seemed to be a bit stronger this year. What a horrible blow to start the season. Hope he bounces back well.
How has Goosen looked in camp? Asking him to jump into C at this point is a tall ask.
