Patrick Neufeld and Chris Matthews remained non-participants at Winnipeg Blue Bombers practice Tuesday, and remain questionable for the team's season opener against the BC Lions Saturday, according to a report from TSN 1290's Darrin Bauming.

Bauming added Blue Bombers' head coach Mike O'Shea remains hopeful the two can play Saturday and won't rule anyone out until the last minute.

Neufeld has been with the Bombers for the past five season and is the projected starter at left guard heading into the season.

Matthews returned to the Blue Bombers after four seasons in the NFL and a brief stint with the Calgary Stampeders last season. Matthews is a projected starter at receiver for the Bombers.
