Hall was listed as the back up quarterback as recently as last week when the Blue Bombers lost 23-20 to the Calgary Stampeders. He had 53 yards, one interception and no touchdowns on 6-of-14 passing attempts in two preseason games this year.

The former Cougars passer was the team’s starter in 2013, but had less than a stellar season, throwing only nine touchdowns to 10 interceptions with 1,999 yards and a 57 percent completion percentage.

Hall played for BYU from 2007 to 2009, throwing for 11,365 yards, 94 touchdowns and 40 interceptions.

Court keeps NFL collusion case alive

NFL • A $4 billion lawsuit from the players union accusing NFL team owners of setting a secret salary cap in 2010 was kept alive by a federal appeals court Friday as the sniping between the two sides persists long after the end of the lockout.

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis partially reversed a federal judge’s order that had rejected the union’s collusion claim, sending the case back to U.S. District Judge David Doty for further proceedings. The three-judge appeals court panel that heard oral arguments in January disagreed with Doty on one of the union’s two arguments for pursuing damages despite the 2011 collective bargaining agreement that was supposed to relinquish the union’s right to sue for alleged breaches of the old CBA.

The NFL called the appeals court decision "entirely procedural in nature" and said it’s "far from validating" the claims of the NFL Players Association.
