Stampeders quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell is scheduled to undergo an MRI to determine the extent of an injury suffered against B.C. on Saturday night.
Mitchell left the game against the Lions late in the fourth quarter favouring his right arm, chest and shoulder area.
“It was actually the second to last throw. Derek Dennis was getting pushed back into me and as I went to finish the throw I felt that and almost tried to stop myself and use more arm and I think that’s what did it right there,” Mitchell said.
“I tried to stay in one more play and when I threw the next one I knew I couldn’t do it.”
But Mitchell confirms it’s not his throwing shoulder that’s the issue.
“Non-contacts always suck, that means it’s tendon, muscular. I’m just glad it’s not my shoulder. It’s more my pec. Once I get the MRI I’ll know for sure timeline-wise.”
The Stamps franchise pivot completed 23-of-34 passes for 252 yards with two touchdowns and one interception during Calgary’s Week 3 win against B.C.
Backup quarterback Nick Arbuckle entered in the fourth quarter for Mitchell and led two touchdowns drives while completing 9-of-9 passes for 93 yards and one major through the air, guiding the Stampeders to an improbable comeback victory.
But Calgary awaits the results of the MRI for Mitchell.
