CALGARY — Bo Levi Mitchell will reassume control of the Calgary Stampeders’ offence this week, getting the start in Edmonton on Saturday against the Elks.
Mitchell was placed on the six-game injured list on Aug. 17 with a broken fibula. After two weeks of practising with his team, he’ll get back on the field for the Labour Day rematch at Commonwealth Stadium.
The two-time Most Outstanding Player and two-time Grey Cup champ didn’t look like himself to start the 2021 season. The 31-year-old made 44 of 73 passes this season for 542 yards, a touchdown and five interceptions through two games before it was revealed that he’d been injured. Backup pivot Jake Maier assumed starting duties as a raw rookie and fared well through three games, though the Stamps sit in last place in the West Division with a 1-4 record.
