Quarterback Mitchell Gale is on his way to B.C. according to TSN’s Farhan Lalji.
Lions pivot Travis Lulay suffered what’s believed to be a major knee injury in B.C.’s win over Montreal, which caused a need at the position for Wally Buono.
The 27-year-old has played for the Argos, Ticats, Riders and most recently attended Calgary Stampeders training camp during four seasons in the CFL.
Gale made his first three career starts with the Riders in 2016 when Saskatchewan starter Darian Durant went down with an injury in July. In his first career start, the six-foot-one, 225-pound passer threw for 354 yards against Ottawa, leading the Riders to their first win of the season.
He’s thrown for 1,050 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions in 13 career games.
