Alouettes QB Calvillo will start against Stamps
Montreal, QC (Sports Network) - Montreal Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo will start on Thursday as his club welcomes the Calgary Stampeders to Molson Stadium.
Calvillo had been listed as questionable earlier in the week due to a left shoulder injury suffered against Winnipeg which required an MRI, but confirmed that he'll be under center for the Week 3 matchup.
In that contest, a 41-30 victory on home turf last Friday, the veteran signal- caller was drilled while sliding to the turf. He briefly left the field, but returned and finished the game.
"It's great to know that he'll be out there," admitted slotback Jamel Richardson. "He's the best QB in the league and he obviously gives us a great chance to win every week."
Calvillo has thrown for 617 yards and four touchdowns in the season's first two games.
