The worst-case scenario for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers has come to light.

Quarterback Drew Willy will be out of action for at least six to eight weeks due to a tibial plateau fracture, as well as a partial PCL tear in his right knee.

Willy suffered the injury during Sunday’s game against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, in which they lost 38-8.
