Buck Pierce wants to stay healthy and win games, and both he and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers will do what they can to make that happen.

That includes avoiding plays which open him to a higher risk of injury.

The Bombers have said Pierce is their starting quarterback again going into training camp.

The only backup they retained with any CFL experience is Justin Goltz.

Pierce said he worked hard in the off-season and feels good.

But he understands how disappointed fans were when he missed 11 games last season as the Bombers missed the playoffs.
