Anthony Calvillo is questionable for this Thursday's game

RDS reporter Dider Ormejuste announced on Twitter that Montreal Alouettes quarterback, Anthony Calvillo is questionable with a left shoulder injury for this Thursday's home game against the Calgary Stampeders.

Head coach Marc Trestman is put into a situation of whether or not to start backup quarterback Adrian McPherson. As mentioned throughout the off season McPherson has patiently waited for his opportunity.

Now his chance could happen this Thursday against a limping Stampeders team that has their own quarterback injury issue with Drew Tate out for an indefinite amount of time.

What could be Trestman's next move? Given that the injury announcement was made this afternoon, he could allow Calvillo to rest up and contemplate making him a game time decision. Or Trestman could immediately announce McPherson as his starter and enable him to take all the first team repetitions.

The Alouettes knew very well that Calvillo would open to unnecessary hits from the opposition. It seemed from Friday's game that injury could be more serious than what initial replay showed.

Now Trestman must make a calculated decision that puts the team in the best position to win this Thursday and beyond if Calvillo will out for more than one week.
