Drew Willy says he will be out there on Sunday for the 52nd Labour Day Classic at Mosaic Stadium.

Just don’t ask him about the injured finger on his throwing hand or how painful it is, because he’s not going to answer it.

“I plan on being out there,” Willy said repeatedly after today’s rain-delayed practice at Investors Group Field. “That’s all I’m really going to say about it.”

The former Saskatchewan Roughriders backup smacked his right hand on Don Unamba’s helmet towards the end of Thursday’s practice and didn’t finish the session. He made plenty of throws today, although the practice was conducted at half speed so he didn’t have to put much zip on the ball.

Willy wears gloves during games, but he wasn’t wearing them during today’s practice.

“I just really wanted to see the most pain I could feel in the finger,” said Willy, but he once refused to say how much pain he felt.
