Quarterback Mike Reilly to start for Edmonton Eskimos vs. Montreal Alouettes

EDMONTON - Quarterback Mike Reilly will start for the Eskimos as Edmonton hosts the Montreal Alouettes on Saturday afternoon.

Rookie Jonathan Crompton had been pencilled in as the Eskimos starting quarterback after Reilly was concussed in last week's 34-22 loss to the Toronto Argonauts.

Reilly has started every game for Edmonton this season.

The Eskimos announced that Reilly would get the start less than two hours before the game's opening kickoff.
