To be, or not to be?

To throw, or not to throw?

While Drew Tate and the Calgary Stampeders will hardly go all Shakespeare on us, one of this week’s worst-kept secrets was officially confirmed Wednesday morning when the injured pivot showed up to practice and still wasn’t healthy enough to throw.

The lingering forearm strain paves the way for backup Kevin Glenn to make his first start of the season Friday against the host Montreal Alouettes (5:30 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770).

The news should surprise no one, as Tate still hasn’t thrown a ball since midway through the fourth quarter of last week’s 36-21 loss in Regina.

It didn’t even surprise Tate.

“No, I was kind of thinking it was going to happen like this,” Tate said. “When I wake up in the morning and it doesn’t feel good, it’s probably a good sign (I’m not going to play).”
