WINNIPEG — Despite an initial scare, the Winnipeg Blue Bomebers confirmed that star linebacker Adam Bighill will indeed suit up Sunday when they take on the Calgary Stampeders in the Western Final at McMahon Stadium.

Head coach Mike O’Shea reiterated on the club’s weekly radio segment with Bob Irvin of CJOB.

Bighill recorded four defensive tackles in Winnipeg’s 23-18 win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the Western Semi-Final on Sunday, earning the franchise its first playoff win since 2011.  There was some concern exiting Sunday’s contest that Bighill had sustained an undisclosed injury but seems as though he will dress.

Bighill and the Bombers return to practice on Wednesday afternoon at Investors Group Field before heading to Calgary on Saturday ahead of the division final.
