Blue Bombers’ Chris Streveler Impresses In Win Over Edmonton

Published

on

If Winnipeg Blue Bombers quarterback Chris Streveler is looking to make his case to rise on the depth chart, Friday’s performance against the Edmonton Eskimos will certainly help.

Streveler was impressive in Winnipeg’s 33-13 win over Edmonton on Friday, completing all 10 of his passes, highlighted by an 80-yard touchdown pass to wideout Myles White.

Despite his impressive performance, Streveler is unsure if it will help him on the depth chart.

“I don’t know,” Streveler said, according to TSN. “I don’t really think about that as much. It’s a day-by-day process. This was just another small, little piece of everything that we’ve been doing.

“We’ve been practicing for two weeks now, so to say that one game is going to make a tremendous leap for anybody, I don’t know if that’s the case. You just want to get better every single day and come and do your best and learn and compete.”

“I think that (Streveler) did a great job going in there and just kind of taking command, taking control and showing that he can for sure play in this league,” starter Matt Nichols said.

Stampeders’ Bo Levi Mitchell Ruled Out

Calgary Stampeders quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell has been ruled out for Week 9’s game against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Thursday.

Mitchell was able to return to practice on Tuesday, and was able to make a number of throws at various distances and lengths, but the team ultimately decided that he was not ready for action just yet.

Stampeders head coach Dave Dickenson had left the door open for Mitchell to dress against Winnipeg, but now he is not going to dress for the game either.

Mitchell, for his part, is remaining upbeat about his injured shoulder.

“It felt great” Mitchell said on Tuesday, according to TSN. “I didn’t really want to take the helmet off…overall, I felt pretty good.

“That’s Dave (Dickenson’s) decision. Dave and Huf (GM John Hufnagel) – let those guys decide.”

Mitchell will now set his sights on Week 10, where he could return as the team takes on the Montreal Alouettes at home.
