Bombers head coach Mike O’Shea: I think Nichols will be good to go

It appears as though Bombers quarterback Matt Nichols could play in the West semifinal on Sunday.

Nichols hurt his calf on a non-contact play in the first quarter against the Lions and did not return in Week 19.

Nichols started 17 games for Winnipeg in 2017 and threw for 4,472 yards with a league-best 28-8 TD-INT ratio. Dan LeFevour took his place in Winnipeg’s Week 20 win over Calgary. The 30-year-old had started 30 games in a row for the Bombers.

The Bombers host their first home playoff game since 2011 and getting their franchise quarterback back in the lineup can boost their chances of moving on.
