Nick Arbuckle will start at quarterback, while Bo Levi Mitchell is slated to remain out when the Calgary Stampeders host the Montreal Alouettes on Saturday.

Arbuckle was only a partial participant in practice on Thursday due to elbow tightness, but is listed as the starter for the seventh consecutive week.

Arbuckle has gone 4-2 as a starter since Mitchell tore a pectoral muscle in Week 3 of the CFL season.

Mitchell, the CFL’s outstanding player and Grey Cup MVP last season, practised Tuesday but didn’t throw Wednesday due to soreness.

Third-stringer Montell Cozart, a second-year player with just one CFL pass attempt, is listed as the backup. He handled the majority of snaps on Thursday at practice.
