Blue Bombers quarterback Drew Willy injured his throwing hand during a practice drill Thursday and was down on the field for a couple of minutes, but head coach Mike O’Shea says he will be fine.

“Yes,” O’Shea said, when asked if Willy will practice Friday.

“He got his hand caught up with another player’s. I just talked to him. He says he’s good.”

It happened near the end of practice at Investors Group Field as the Bombers prepared to face the archrival Saskatchewan Roughriders – Willy’s old team – in the Labour Day Classic in Regina Sunday.

Willy dropped back to pass but the ball was deflected by linebacker Don Unamba, who had broken through the line. It looked like Willy jammed a finger when his hand got caught up with Unamba’s.

Willy, 27, has been a star for the Bombers this season, leading the team to four fourth-quarter comeback wins.
