No doubt there a slight chance he could return but no doubt even his presence around the team could help them rather he plays again this year or not
without a doubt and more than anything i think that’s what this is about - injecting emotional boost.
it’s a too bad he’s not playing tonight
I would take a wounded Rourke over a lame dug like VA any day.
Be tremendous for Lions fans & all of us who’ll watch the playoffs on the Teli
Speaking of Rourke, his younger brother is having a terrific season at Ohio U too 10 in NCAA football passing yards. CFL teams should be highly interested

“We expect him to start and play a full quarter.”
Ah, a full quarter? So, how healthy is he really? I would expect him to play a full game if he is healthy and does not show rust.
Just enough to get him into it and shake the rust heading into the playoffs? No sense risking another injury in a meaningless game.
Totally agree with you - how many times have we seen this in football or other sports where a player tries to come back way too soon and is never the same? I think that the Lions need to play the long game on this one and not even think about playing him until next season.

Preach on sister preach on!!
Please don't play - please don't - foot injuries are not something to mess with - Bill Walton, Kevin Mchale etc- granted that is a different sport and those guys were seven feet tall - please don't play - can we just wait until next year - please? Is that too much to ask?

Oh my. Nathan & I think alike about TV programing. 57 channels & nothing on.
"“Nah,” he grinned when asked if he’d seen anything good while sidelined. “There’s a lot of garbage out there.”
No I agree with you I think it's more or less just for morale purposes for both the fans and his teammates but trying to step in at this point of the season really makes no sense. All the continuity is gone.

I am so pleased to see Nathan Rourke playing again. BC is an amazing team that I hope makes it to the Grey Cup.
