Winnipeg Blue Bombers quarterback Matt Nichols was back at practice on Monday.

Nichols left in the third quarter of Friday night’s win against the Ottawa Redblacks after taking a hit on an 18-yard run by Kevin Brown. Nichols was tackled as a runner instead of sliding.
Nichols only needed six yards for a first down — he had ample opportunity to slide early, but chose instead to wait until the last possible moment.
Nichols entered concussion protocol, but he was made available to the media after the game and the starting QB felt fine afterwards.
