Blue Bombers defensive back Johnny Sears remembers his last game at the old Ivor Wynne Stadium last year, before he got injured.
Now he's eager to get back on the field Friday in his first start since, when the Toronto Argonauts visit Investors Group Field.
He says it's been a long time and, if anything, his trademark aggressive approach is going to be intensified.
Not that Winnipeg's defence has anything to prove, after keeping the team competitive when the offence stumbled.
Coach Tim Burke wasn't ready Tuesday to announce any roster moves he suggested might happen as a result of that ailing offence.
But he says he will be ready Wednesday.
