CALGARY - Slowly but surely, Drew Tate’s injured right arm feels a bit better with each passing day.

But the Calgary Stampeders quarterback doesn’t think he’ll be fully healthy until 2014.

“I don’t think it’s going to be ready all year, to be honest with you,” Tate said Monday after making it through the first practice of the work week at McMahon Stadium. “I think it’s going to be something I’ve gotta deal with the rest of this year, and then, hopefully, next year come back strong. Right now, I won’t be 100% at all, I don’t think, this year. That’s my belief. I hope I’m wrong.”

Tate’s mysterious forearm/elbow injury that has sidelined the 28-year-old Texan since July 5 has been called medial epicondylitis — otherwise known as golfer’s elbow — a tendon injury around the ulnar nerve and flexor tendon.
