It appears the Winnipeg Blue Bombers have got off lucky with the health of quarterback Drew Willy — not so lucky with receiver Nick Moore and defensive lineman Kashawn Fraser.

Willy had x-rays on the ankle he injured in Sunday’s Labour Day Classic loss in Regina, and while head coach Mike O’Shea says he hasn’t seen the results, yet, he’s confident he’ll have his starting pivot for Sunday’s Banjo Bowl rematch.

“I’m pretty sure he’s good,” O’Shea said, Wednesday. “He seems fine. He got bent over pretty good. He’s dodged a bullet there. And he’s tough.”

Moore, on the other hand, is out again, this time with a high ankle sprain.

“He’ll be a few weeks. Maybe more, we’ll see,” O’Shea said of Winnipeg’s prize off-season acquisition, who’s already missed three games. “We’ll see how he responds to the treatment. I’m disappointed for him. When it comes to injuries, to me it’s more on a personal level. The teams’ rosters are built to survive that.
