The Calgary Stampeders fell to 1-1 on the season in the Canadian Football League following a disappointing 39-36 loss to the Toronto Argonauts on Saturday afternoon at the Rogers Centre in the Ontario capital.
But the Stampeders lost more than a football game. In the first quarter, shortly after leading the Stampeders on a touchdown drive, Calgary quarterback Drew Tate injured his left shoulder and did not return. It is unknown at this time if Tate dislocated or separated his shoulder. He is expected to fly back to Calgary this week to have his arm examined.
Backup quarterback Kevin Glenn, who played the majority of the game against Montreal today is expected to start Thursday in Montreal.
One major concern in Calgary today was their sloppy pass defense. Toronto Argonauts quarterback Ricky Ray threw for 407 yards–including 118 yards to Andre Durie and 107 yards to Dontrelle Inman. Cory Boyd also had 101 yards rushing.
