CALGARY — The Calgary Stampeders have not yet determined a time frame for injured quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell, TSN’s Farhan Lalji reported Wednesday.
The veteran quarterback suffered an upper body injury in Week 3 and underwent an MRI on Tuesday, but the team is reportedly seeking a second opinion on the results.
Mitchell left the game with what initially looked like shoulder discomfort late in a 36-32 win over the BC Lions on Saturday. However, he said after the game in an interview that his shoulder wasn’t affected, instead indicating it was his pectoral muscle.
Nick Arbuckle is expected to get the start on Saturday when the Stampeders take on the Saskatchewan Roughriders at Mosaic Stadium. Arbuckle, a 25-year-old sophomore, was spectacular in relief last weekend, completing all nine attempts and finding the end zone twice to lead an impressive last-game comeback.
Despite a slow start this season — averaging just 7.2 yards per attempt with three touchdowns and two interceptions — Mitchell is considered one of the best quarterbacks in the CFL. The two-time Grey Cup Champion and Most Outstanding Player signed a four-year contract extension in the off-season.
