Stampeders’ Big Set-back: Queue Kevin Glenn
Drew Tate, Calgary’s young star pivot, has re-injured his non-throwing shoulder. What seemed like a horrendous injury at the time, which was made worse considering Tate missed some big time last year for virtually the same time, turns out not to be so bad. Calgary’s medical team has said they expect Tate to miss just 4-6 weeks, just in time for the second half of the season. We can only assume the Stamps will still be in the playoff picture at that point.
And the man who will lead them in the interim is Kevin Glenn, a seasoned veteran who has had several successful stints around the league. Really, could there be a better guy to have as back-up? He is only two years removed from a 5000+ yard season. He has seen everything any defensive coordinator could possibly throw at him. He will not rattle under pressure, but will instead do everything in his power to persevere and show that he still has it.
While KG hasn’t had much time in Calgary to get completely acclimated with his new teammates in a game situation, expect him to become comfortable sooner rather than later. Glenn has all the tools to succeed, and I for one am glad he has the opportunity to show what he can do in red and white.
…and that is the Last Word.
