Nichols throwing footballs at Bombers practice

Everyone in Winnipeg has been on Matt Nichols watch since he went down in practice on June 6.

Bombers head coach Mike O’Shea said Nichols would be out four-to-six weeks one day after the injury occurred. But could he be back sooner: Nichols was on the turf tossing footballs Monday morning.

The 30-year-old left after making a few throws according to Winnipeg Sun reporter Ted Wyman.

Rookie Chris Streveler started at quarterback in Winnipeg’s 33-30 marathon loss to Edmonton, completing 15-of-28 passes for 178 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions and rushed seven times for 30 yards.

The Bombers play in Montreal on Friday night during Week 2.
