Head coach Mike O’Shea updated the status of two key offensive players on Monday.
Matt Nichols hurt his calf on a non-contact play in the first quarter and did not return, he was replaced by Dominique Davis as the Bombers lost B.C.

Running back Andrew Harris took a helmet-to-helmet shot in the fourth quarter and had to be helped from the field.
Mike Oshea tells CJOB today that Andrew Harris "should be ready to go", Matt Nichols "not so much" for Fridays season finale in Calgary.

Nichols has started all 17 games for Winnipeg in 2017 and thrown for 4,472 yards with a league-best 28-8 TD-INT ratio. O’Shea did say after the game Nichols will be fine. Meanwhile, Harris leads the league in yards from scrimmage (967 rushing and 829 receiving).
