Bombers go with backup but Stampeders making quarterback call Friday

July 25, 2013 - 12:19 PM

WINNIPEG - The Calgary Stampeders are making a game-day decision on starting quarterback but the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are committed to backup Justin Goltz for Friday.

Regular Winnipeg starter Buck Pierce didn't seem too pleased with the decision Thursday, suggesting he was healthy enough to play.

But head coach Tim Burke dismissed any suggestion the decision not to start him was related to anything other than his health.

As for Calgary, Burke says he expects to see Bo Levi Mitchell when the whistle blows, although Calgary coach John Hufnagel hasn't made that clear.

Hufnagel says it will either be Mitchell or Drew Tate.

Kevin Glenn is No. 3 at best for the Stamps after getting roughed up in their come-from-behind win over the Montreal Alouettes last week.
