There had been questions about whether Winnipeg Blue Bombers' QB Drew Willy would be healthy enough to play in this weekend's home game against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
The team announced Friday that he will suit up as the starter.
Willy's throwing shoulder was injured when he was sacked late in the second quarter of a Bombers' 25-9 loss to the B.C. Lions on Sept. 13.
Fortunately for the Bombers, they had a bye last weekend, giving Willy a little more time to heal.
Reports from last week said Willy would be unlikely to play against Hamilton. That prognosis was upgraded to a day-by-day evaluation this week with the team saying Willy's status would be a game-time decision.
Kickoff is at 5:30 CST at Investors Group Field.Suggest a correction
