WINNIPEG - Chad Simpson says he's anxious to get back onto the field.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers running back missed the first three games of the season after suffering a leg injury in training camp.

Bombers coach Paul LaPolice says he's happy he'll have Simpson back for their game Wednesday in Toronto.

Winnipeg will also be starting quarterback Alex Brink, who says he feels fine after a hit in last week's loss in Edmonton bounced his head on the turf and prompted concussion speculation.

Brink is replacing Buck Pierce, who's out of action this week with a foot injury.

Injuries are also keeping slotback Cory Watson, tackle Andre Douglas, defensive back Alex Suber and linebackers Marcellus Bowman and Brandon Stewart out of action.
