    their most important offensive players.

    Minutes into the fourth quarter, running back Jerome Messam burst through the Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ defensive line and took off for a 30-yard run before being taken down by defensive tackle Bruce Johnson.

    It was a clean tackle, but it ended with Messam’s head jerking back and smashing on the McMahon Stadium turf. He stayed down after the play ended and was walked off the field a couple minutes later.

    He didn’t return.

    “You guys saw the game — obviously, he took a tough hit right there,” said Stampeders head coach Dave Dickenson. “Great run, a run we had to have, so he goes with the doctors, they tell me what’s going on and we make decisions from there.”

    The Stampeders are sure to be cautious with Messam, as they’re a team that got a first-hand look at the suffering a concussion can cause a running back over the past couple years as Jon Cornish dealt with head injuries.

    Maybe the "Whina Clipper" (Cornish) will consider a short-term comeback???

    Wouldn't that be something...but I doubt it. Cornish looks content in pumping up the crowd on the sidelines.

    Won't take Huff long to find someone. Us losing a National at RB will change things.

    Calgary is already playing 8 Canadians as first-stringers when they only have to start 7.

    As a result, if they lose Messam as a Canadian starter it won't change anything with respect to the ratio.
