Bombers QB Matt Nichols will play Saturday against the Lions

Winnipeg’s franchise quarterback is set to start on Saturday, injured finger and all.

Nichols left the game against the Tiger-Cats in Week 16 after taking a shot to the right hand.

Nichols suffered the injury in the first quarter when stripped by Hamilton’s Abdul Kanneh. He got up flexing his hand and there was blood on it when he went to the bench.

Nichols leads the CFL with 26 touchdown passes against only seven interceptions. He hasn’t thrown a pick in his last 107 straight passes.

Nichols has answered the questions lingering about his finger.

  1. he threw an interception just before the half against Hamilton, before he left the game. His streak before that was impressive though….

      Plus he also has now thrown 27 TDs. Me thinks 3down staff is getting lazy.

    • Realistically to that wasn’t even his fault. Receiver didn’t look back at the ball, even admitted as such to the local media. Say what you will about him but no one can deny the man knows how to take care of the football
