Luckily for us Matthews wasn't paying much attention at practice or team meetings...
I really would like to know what Matthews story really is and maybe we'll never know?   The coaches and players were so high on him in training camp and then he more or less disappeared on the field and then was injured.    His running style always gave the impression he was dogging it but he would still come up with the catch most of the time.   So what really happened to Matthews after training camp because our MODP wore his number the day we released him out of respect??

Some good news:

As suspected, a few #Bombers players who have been working through injury are back practicing on Day 1 following the bye. Pat Neufeld the most notable, practicing with the team for the first time in 2019.

Jeffcoat, Demski, Whitehead, Speller also practicing. Matt Nichols is not.

Coaching football for many years, let me offer up a theory based on what I've seen in the past. Not saying this is what happened, but given that we know their was some late night trouble...
In the past, I have seen guys who are very well liked in the dressing room that can negatively influence others. Matthews may have been that guy that talked others into staying for one or two more beers at the bar, or convincing them to go out when they really should have been studying the playbook, or been working out.
These aren't the worst offences in the world, and you can't really blame Matthews for what others do, but when you get a guy like that and he's not performing up to expectations the decision to cut bait on them can come quicker than normal.
Coaches, as a general rule hate negative influencers in their dressing room.

Injuries including the stabbing may have hampered his effectiveness. New players were playing well so when Adams returned from his injury a decision needed to be made. That decision was to keep the younger players on the roster and save some SMS.

If there was more to it than that it doesn't really matter. Good to him and his career being able to continue in Montreal.

If I had to guess I think we'll see Speller back on the game day roster. He might not immediately be back starting but would replace Eli as the # 6 OL. Or he might be ready to resume playing at LG with Desjarlais back as # 6 OL.

Neufeld is going to need some game conditioning and practice for a week or two IMO but might be ready to return down the road. It gives us some depth options if and when it might be necessary.

Whether there is an expectation to start at LG down the road can only be a discussion topic until he actually gets activated.

Love the GIF. That's my exact reaction to the "he's sharing or playbook with everyone!!" comments.

Per Ted Wyman on Twitter: O'Shea on RB Andrew Harris returning from two-game suspension for positive drug test. "He's pissed off. He's not in any mood to chat and he's not just gonna exchange pleasantries. He's angry. I'm sure that will turn into something productive for him."

A highly motivated Andrew Harris will be scary. Henoc better eat his Wheaties this week.

From Ed Tait :

Mike O'Shea: both Jackson Jeffcoat and Pat Neufeld practised today, but still have one week left on the six-game injured list. #Bombers

It has been almost five weeks since Matt Nichols suffered an injury to his throwing arm. Mike O?Shea says it will be a week or two more before he?s able to provide another update on his quarterback?s health status.

That can't be correct with Neufeld. He's been on the 6 game IR for 12 games. He's eligible to return but probably needs an extra week to get back to game speed.

an opposing team's time would be better spent in the film room than trying to get inside info from a released player, especially if you're a coach or an assistant... it is truly laughable to think that there is anything to learn from a released player... hell, I'd go as far as sending him with our play book and it still wouldn't matter...

are you, as an opposing team, going to learn the entire Bomber play book and be able to decipher anything on the field during a game as to what we are actually going to do based upon our line up or formation?  and then, have everyone on your team also know and be able to adjust before the snap of the ball?

honestly, people need to think about this for a few minutes and think about all they would have to do to even have a clue as to how to defend against us... it just isn't possible to learn anything of value... seriously...

I think he was put back on the six-game list after his first six expired.  He may well need the week of practice but I do not think he's eligible to play yet, unless they take him off early.
