Montreal Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo said Wednesday he is symptom-free after suffering a concussion in mid-August and fully expects to play again this season.

The 41-year-old pivot is eligible to come off the nine-game injured list in time to face the Toronto Argonauts in the last game of the regular season.

I've been adding to my workload week in and week out and I know I'll be coming off the nine-game (injured list) going into Week 18 and that's my goal right now is to get ready to play for that game," said Calvillo.

Calvillo suffered the concussion in a game against the Saskatchewan Roughriders on August 17 when his head hit the turf at Mosaic Stadium. He is also recovering from a partially torn rotator cuff.

"The toughest part is there's no timeline on cussions. When you pull a hamstring or hurt your shoulder, it's four-to-six weeks or whatever and you know that's a goal," added Calvillo. "With a concussion, it's what your body tells you."

The Alouettes are currently in third place in the East Division and could clinch a playoff spot with a win against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Thanksgiving Day.
