Another day, another diagnosis.

Such is life around McMahon Stadium when it comes to injured Calgary Stampeders quarterback Drew Tate.

Tate had a platelet-rich plasma injection Thursday into what is now being called a soft-tissue injury near his right elbow, and the best-case scenario for the Texan is a return near the end of the month.

“Two-to-three weeks … maybe more,” Stamps GM/head coach John Hufnagel said. “We want to take it cautiously.

“I’m not a doctor, OK, but I would think that tennis elbow would be something you could relate it to,” Hufnagel added. “Essentially, it is the soft tissue connecting to the bone, and it’s painful, so hopefully, we can get this cleared up.”

The drama surrounding Tate hasn’t stopped since the 28-year-old pivot left the July 5 contest in Regina, complaining of a sore throwing arm.
