Toronto took care of Edmonton easily today to march one step closer to the Grey Cup in the CFL playoffs, but the season-ending insult to the Big E was minor compared to the injury felt by Eskimos quarterback Matt Nichols, who was forced out of the game in the third quarter after suffering a grotesque leg injury. (To top it off, the refs penalized him for intentional grounding.)

Nichols, who played college ball at Eastern Washington, would be immediately taken off the field on a cart though amazingly only suffered a dislocated ankle according to early reports. If so, the man is made of rubber. [TSN]
