Neiswander gets QB call for Als today

  • Print

MONCTON, N.B. -- The Montreal Alouettes are giving Josh Neiswander another chance to prove himself.

The sophomore quarterback turned in a decent performance coming off the bench in last weekend's 36-14 loss to the B.C. Lions. He'll start for the Alouettes today when they face Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Moncton Stadium.

Incumbent Anthony Calvillo has been out since suffering a concussion last month and backup Tanner Marsh sprained his thumb against B.C. Neiswander got the start Aug. 22 against the Lions but was replaced by Marsh, who rallied Montreal to the stunning 39-38 and secured the No. 1 job.

Montreal had only two practices this week but the 6-2, 212-pound Neiswander is ready for the challenge.

"Football is a team sport, it really has more to do with us than it has to do with me," he said. "I've been comfortable with the playbook the entire year."
