Bombers’ Mike O’Shea expects LB Adam Bighill to play against Eskimos

Blue Bombers head coach Mike O’Shea says he expects linebacker Adam Bighill to play when Winnipeg visits the Edmonton Eskimos on Saturday.

Bighill suited up for practice Tuesday, seemingly recovered after leaving Winnipeg’s 31-14 win over visiting Montreal in the third quarter with an upper-body injury. He was one of several Blue Bombers to get hurt in Friday’s game.

Star running back Andrew Harris left the game in the second quarter and did not return, while receiver Nic Demski left in the third.

Harris and Demski, along with receiver Darvin Adams, missed Tuesday’s practice. But O’Shea told reporters that he’s not ruling them out of Saturday’s game at Commonwealth Stadium and said he will continue to monitor them over the week.
