Montreal Alouettes quarterback Antonio Pipkin is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a lower-leg injury, according to TSN Football Insider Dave Naylor.

Pipkin suffered the injury late in the third quarter of the Alouettes' Week 1 loss to the Edmonton Eskimos.

Vernon Adams, who replaced the injured Pipkin in Week 1, going 7-10 for 134 yards, one touchdown, and one interception, will start for the Alouettes when they return from their bye week and take on the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in Week 3.

Earlier in the day the Alouettes signed Canadian quarterback Brandon Bridge to a one-year deal, according to TSN's Farhan Lalji.

Bridge returns to the team that drafted him in 2015.

The 27-year-old spent training camp with the Toronto Argonauts but was cut ahead of the season.

Bridge started his career with the Alouettes before moving to the Saskatchewan Roughriders. In parts of four seasons in the CFL, Bridge has thrown for 2,485 yards, 13 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. Bridge has added 321 yards and four touchdowns on the ground.
