OTTAWA - Suspended Calgary Stampeders defensive back Quincy Butler will have to wait a few more days to find out what’s in store for his football future.

Butler was handed 18 months probation and 175 hours of community service Thursday after pleading guilty to assaulting a cab driver outside a Calgary casino back in May.

At the time of the team-imposed suspension, Stamps GM/head coach John Hufnagel stated Butler’s status would remain in limbo until the court case was cleared up.

Hufnagel addressed the situation Friday during his post-practice scrum at McMahon Stadium.

“I’ll be meeting with Quincy early next week, and we’ll talk about things, and we’ll probably make an announcement at that time,” said Hufnagel, his mind clearly more focused on the Ottawa RedBlacks, who the Stamps will face Sunday at TD Place (1 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770).
