Lions QB Travis Lulay out 3-6 weeks with MCL sprain

Dec 19 2017, 5:14 pm

The B.C. Lions will be without their starting quarterback for a while after Travis Lulay suffered an MCL sprain Thursday against the Montreal Alouettes.

Lulay confirmed on TSN 1040 this morning that he will miss 3-6 weeks with the injury. With nine games left in the season, Lulay should get up to speed in time for the playoffs. But with the Lions currently sitting in third place in the West Division with a 4-5 record, the playoffs are far from a certainty.

It hasn’t been a banner season for Lulay, who has the second worst quarterback rating among CFL starters this season.

The Lions will now turn to back-up John Beck, a 34-year-old quarterback with limited CFL experience. B.C.’s next game is this Sunday against the surprising (5-4) Ottawa Redblacks.
