CALGARY - A Texan will get the start.

When it comes to the Calgary Stampeders quarterback situation, that’s all that’ll be known until Friday, when GM/head coach John Hufnagel will choose between the healthy but inexperienced Bo Levi Mitchell or the previously injured and possibly rusty Drew Tate.

Following the Stamps final practice session Wednesday at McMahon Stadium, before the team heads to Winnipeg to take on the Blue Bombers on Friday (6 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770), all Hufnagel would say is that Kevin Glenn isn’t healthy enough to be anything other than the third pivot.

Mitchell, a product of Katy, Texas, and Tate, a native of Baytown, Texas, split the first-team snaps, with Tate and his strained right forearm doing more than he’s done in nearly three weeks.
