MONTREAL — The Montreal Alouettes have acquired quarterback Kevin Glenn from the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

The Riders get a fifth−round pick in the 2016 draft in return for the veteran.

The deal came before today’s 4 p.m. CFL trade deadline.

Montreal (5−9) lost starter Rakeem Cato to injury in Monday’s 25−17 home loss to the Toronto Argonauts.

Glenn completed 171−of−257 passes for 2,174 yards with nine TDs and 10 interceptions this season with the Riders (2−13), who have been eliminated from playoff contention in the West Division.

Montreal is last in the East Division but tied with both B.C. (5−9) and Winnipeg (5−10) for the third playoff spot in the West Division standings but would have to accumulate more points than both clubs in order to become the first Eastern squad to cross over to the West come playoff time.

Montreal hosts Hamilton (9−5) on Sunday.
