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.
