Blue Bombers’ QB Zach Collaros leaves game with suspected lower-body injury, quickly returns

Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ quarterback Zach Collaros left Sunday’s Labour Day Classic matchup against the Saskatchewan Roughriders with a suspected lower body injury.

He appeared to tweak something after throwing an incompletion to Nic Demski near the end of the first quarter. He was not contacted on the play.

Collaros was replaced by second-year pivot Sean McGuire, but returned after sitting out one offensive play before returning. He was briefly in the locker room but quickly returned to the sidelines.

The veteran passer has completed five-of-six pass attempts for 98 yards and led a long touchdown drive to put his team ahead 7-0.

The Blue Bombers lead the Saskatchewan Roughriders by a score of 7-1 with 10:29 remaining in the second quarter.
