The math is simple.

If Calgary Stampeders starting quarterback Drew Tate can’t throw, he won’t start.

For the second straight day, Tate rested the strained muscle in his forearm that forced him to undergo an MRI over the weekend, instead working off to the side, while Kevin Glenn took reps with the first-team offence Tuesday at McMahon Stadium.

While the 28-year-old signal-caller Tate noted physical improvement and will attempt to toss Wednesday, there’s a mental hurdle he needs to get over, as well.
