Willy to Start for Bombers Against Lions

Drew Willy's brief time on the sideline with a lower body injury is over, as the Blue Bombers announced Wednesday that their franchise quarterback will return to start in Thursday's game vs. BC. 
Willy was sidelined in the third quarter of last weekend's 32-3 loss in Edmonton to the Eskimos with what the team called a lower body injury. He didn't return to that game, however the team said Monday that Willy's injury was not considered serious, making him probably for Thursday's home game against the Lions.
The 28-year-old has played an integral role in the Bombers' resurgence starting last season, while currently he sits second among starting CFL quarterbacks with a passer rating of 109.2. Willy has not missed a start this season and will look to lead the Bombers to win number three of 2015 against a tough Lions club.
Willy has completed 71.2 per cent of his passes this season and thrown five touchdown passes to just two interceptions.

Willy gonna get hurt for career one of these games. They aren't taking his numerous injuries serious enough.
