Bill Beacon says Najee Murray's injury is a torn ACL.
He also says that with Matt Shiltz out with a shoulder injury, it is possible that all of the 3 active QB's against the Ti-Cats(Johnny Manziel, Vernon Adams, and Austin Apodaca) were not on the team at the start of this season.
Even though today was Adarius Bowman's first practice, he is expected to dress on Friday.
Again this season, the Als are not "lucky" with injuries. Since the beginning of the season they averaged roughly 16 players on injured lists. On the 6 game injured list, they had 11 players on last game; a few -Boulay,Gagnon and Graham- will come off that list but a least 2 will be added.-Murray and White-
If the 3 QB's on active roster on Friday are Adams,Apodaca and Manziel, this is a sign,at least to me, that Drew Willy will most probably be released soon. They can't afford to keep him as the 4th QB for much longer.
At the beginning of the season, most expected Matthew Shiltz to be the starting QB. Unfortunately, he was injured most of the time. Injured in first pre-season game-illegal hit by Hebert- and was not on active roster before game 5. Injured in games 5 and 6 and should be added to injured list.
I expect Mike Sherman to name the starting QB on Thursday.
I can't imagine that 5 Int. receivers - Bowman,Cunningham,Graham,Jackson and Lewis will dress next Friday. Like Willy, I do think that Ernest Jackson days with the Als will end soon.
Not sure I follow your thinking....are you saying that the fans chanting "We want Johnny" physically hurt him? :o Ofcourse he is saying it hurt his feelings! I think that part was fine, but he went over the top with the other remarks.
And this does relate to the game, as there is a good chance Adams might have to go back in front of these same fans. I would expect them to boo him right out of the park!
"To the fans of the Montreal Alouettes: I am truly sorry for letting my emotions get the best of me in that moment. I’m a competitor, and I responded poorly. I understand y’all wanted to see JM2, & I wish him the best & care most about the Alouettes winning games. Love this Team."
