    Stamps running back Jon Cornish says he's ready to return from concussion

    The summer vacation is now over, and Jon Cornish can’t wait to get back to business.
    Since June 28, the Calgary Stampeders star running back has been told to rest, relax his mind and sit around quietly.
    For a noted busybody — one that works part-time at TD Canada Trust in his spare time — the time away was part agonizing, part reflective. star running back Cornish/10128438/story.html

    Ready to return? Cornish could be back in Week 9
    Stampeder running back Jon Cornish is ready to rumble again.
    The CFL's most valuable player and leading rusher last season has been out of Calgary's lineup with concussion symptoms since the first game of the season.
    The Stampeders have Tuesday off and Cornish says he'll be back to full practice Wednesday. He says he intends to play Sunday in Ottawa against the REDBLACKS.

    Jon Cornish returns to practice after season-opener concussion
    Something good can come from a concussion.
    For Calgary Stampeders star running back Jon Cornish, it was actually having a summer vacation for the first time in his adult life.
    “I was able to take care of a few things around the house and sit out and barbecue a few times,” Cornish said Monday after the team’s brief rundown practice at McMahon Stadium. “It sucked not playing football, but you’ve got to find the positives in everything, and I found the positives in this experience.”

    Micah Johnson, Jeff Fuller felled by injury in Calgary Stampeders win
    It’s not a Calgary Stampeders game without another key player being seriously injured.
    Or, in the case of last weekend’s tilt, two players.
    Defensive lineman Micah Johnson — who has arguably been the team’s best player this season — suffered a knee injury in Saturday’s 30-20 CFL win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
    And the extent of the injury isn’t yet known.
    “It now looks like he will be out for a while,” GM/head coach John Hufnagel said Monday.
