Hamilton Ticats head coach Marcel Bellefeuille says backup Quinton Porter will see “significant playing time? during the final four games of the regular season.
Veteran Kevin Glenn will keep the No. 1 job but, after Porter’s strong performance in relief during Friday’s loss to Winnipeg — 96 yards on 6-for-9 passing and two long scoring drives — Bellefeuille says the team needs to see what else the No. 2 man can do.
“Kevin will start this week but it’s our intention to give Quinton an opportunity down the stretch,? Bellefeuille said. “We feel like he’s earned it.?
“It was important for us to see him play an extended period of clean football — no turnovers, execute your reads, put the ball in the end zone — and he did that,? Bellefeuille said. “He’s done some good things in critical situations against good teams and we need to see more of what he can do.?[url=http://www.thespec.com/sports/ticats/article/608386--porter-to-see-significant-playing-time]http://www.thespec.com/sports/ticats/ar ... aying-time[/url]
Glenn is fifth in the Canadian Football League with 3,325 passing yards, amassing 19 TDs and 11 interceptions. His numbers have mirrored the team’s fortunes — he has a quarterback rating of 118.3 in Hamilton’s seven wins and a 69.2 mark in their seven losses.
