The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have announced that Matt Nichols will be back under center on Saturday when they take on the BC Lions at Investors Group Field in Week 4.

Nichols was was pulled from the 6-game injured list and returned to practice earlier this week and shared first-team reps with rookie Chris Streveler.

“It’s just exciting to get your brother back out there, man,” Winnipeg slotback Adarius Bowman said. “Its like having one of your troops missing for a while and then he’s back. It puts an extra boost in our whole offence.”

Streveler has played admirably in relief of Nichols, winning 1 of the 3 games he started and putting in some solid performances along the way.

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.
