Pirates looking for new starting center

The Peoria Pirates lost a key part of their offensive line Thursday when starting center Robbie Powell left the team.

Powell expects to sign Friday with Montreal of the Canadian Football League. The 6-foot-4, 310-pounder from Purdue was an undersized but steady presence in the middle and anchored Peoria's line since training camp.

The 2-8 Pirates, who are on a bye this weekend, might move tight end Brad Kunz into center.
