TATE OUT FOR WESTERN FINAL


CALGARY - Calgary Stampeders quarterback Drew Tate is out for the rest of the season with a fractured right forearm.

Tate showed up to practice with a cast on his throwing arm, and it was announced he will miss Sunday's CFL West final against B.C., and the Grey Cup if Calgary manages to advance to the title game.

Tate had an MRI and a CT scan Tuesday when the small fracture was discovered.

Kevin Glenn will start for Calgary against the Lions in Vancouver.

"We won 10 out of the last 12. Kevin started eight of those wins so we'll just move on,'' Stampeders coach John Hufnagel said.

Tate is coming off a resilient performance in Calgary's CFL West semifinal.

He overcame a helmet-to-helmet hit in the first half and led the Stampeders to a 36-30 victory over Saskatchewan.

Tate says the injury happened in the third quarter of Sunday's game. It's the latest setback in an injury-plagued campaign for Tate, who missed 14 games in the regular season with a shoulder injury.

"One door closes. Another opens and the opportunity is now Kevin's,'' Tate said. "Kevin will take advantage of it and I think our team will respond.

"I guess 2012 just wasn't my year.''

Now the right person can continue to finish what he started. Good on you Kevin Glenn and good luck with the rest of your 2013 football playing season. You deserve and have shown to be a great team leader.

Good for Kevin, I always respected him. However it is hard to soar with the eagles when you're surround by turkeys.

Riders were beat by a quarterback with a head injury and a broken arm! Think about that. Quite humorous actually!

I am just assuming getzlaf played the year with a concussion and 8 broken fingers.

What cover up? Lying about the injury type does what? He's out for the year.

It is unbelievable.. one way or the other...that the Riders got slapped by a guy who barely knew where he was .....with a broken throwing arm.

It just gets better.
