WINNIPEG - Blue Bombers cornerback Jovon Johnson says the Winnipeg secondary has been too easy to read of late and the team has started to make changes to address the problem.

Winnipeg is preparing for a key matchup this Saturday against the Tiger-Cats in Hamilton.

A win can keep Winnipeg's playoff hopes alive.

Interim head coach Tim Burke says the defence has been a weak link for the Bombers lately.

The CFL team added import defensive lineman Anthony DeGrate to the practice roster Tuesday.

In addition, import defensive end Rodney Fritz was brought back and added to the practice roster to fill a hole caused by injury.

Fritz has played six games for Winnipeg in two years and Burke says he's the kind of player they'd keep around if they had a bigger roster.
