B.C. Lions quarterback Casey Printers could be headed out of the exit door, according to reports.

Printer's agent Jason Medlock reportedly told MOJO Radio 730 in Vancouver that his client won't be returning to the Lions in 2006.

"It's not about what Casey thinks, the writing's on the wall," said Medlock. "He's not going to sit behind Dave Dickenson, who is a great quarterback, and lose two years. Why would he?"

TSN reported that Printers was cleared to practice Monday, but didn't feel well enough to take part.

Following off-season toe surgery, Printers has struggled with an injury to the rotator cuff on his throwing shoulder

"It's baffling to him because he doesn't know who cleared him," Medlock said.

The 2005 MVP has started just one game this season, against the Eskimos in Week 7.

"Hopefully (Printers) can get his shoulder right and hopefully he'll be traded.

"Or, hopefully he'll have a shot at the NFL but definitely not in B.C.," said Medlock. "We feel like Dave is the guy there."
