Drew Willy could possibly start for second straight week

Drew Willy could be behind centre for the Alouettes for a second consecutive game in Week 16, according to Montreal Gazette beat reporter Herb Zurkowsky.

The venerable writer spoke to general manager and head coach Kavis Reed on Tuesday. From his story:

With Darian Durant still nursing a hamstring injury, it’s possible Drew Willy will start his second consecutive game, Reed said.

Willy started in Montreal’s Week 15 blowout 59-11 loss to Calgary, completing 13-of-19 for 137 yards and one touchdown. He was relieved by rookie passer Matt Shiltz who hit 8-for-10 passes gaining 75 yards.

The 30-year-old had seen action in two of Montreal’s games against Ottawa recently after Durant was benched. He completed 8-of-11 passes for 98 yards and 12-of-17 balls for 83 yards in Weeks 11 and 13. It will be Willy’s first start with Montreal.
