Drew Willy plays through injury to spark Blue Bombers past Lions

Darvin Adams’ teammates tried to give the Winnipeg Blue Bombers receiver the game ball, but he instead gave it to quarterback Drew Willy.

Despite hauling in four catches for a career-high 127 yards and one touchdown in a 23-13 win over the B.C. Lions Thursday, Adams said his performance paled in comparison to Willy.

Willy passed for 269 yards and two touchdowns on an injured knee, which also held up during his five carries for a career-high 72 yards.

"He’s coming off an injury and comes back and plays tough running ball," said Adams. "He’s trying to run people over and everything so you’ve got to love that. I play hard for him."
