Drew Tate goes down in Week 2, and Kevin Glenn steps in and takes snaps for the Calgary Stampeders in Week 3.

The scenario that played out in 2012 could again be reality for the Stamps, after an MRI on the injured quarterback’s right arm revealed a “muscle strain” in his forearm, and Tate spent Monday’s practice working on his footwork and holding a football.

Not one throw.

On the bright side, disaster seems to have been averted, as there’s no structural damage. But Tate says he first injured the arm “about a month ago” and tried to fight through it.

“There’s a little pain there,” Tate said. “But we’ll see (Tuesday) and see how it feels.”

Being under centre Friday in Montreal against the Alouettes (5:30 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770), is highly questionable at this point, with Wednesday’s practice before the team flies east being the key day.
