    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for August 23, 2013

    Last year’s Canadian Football League all-star team featured three members of the Calgary Stampeders on the offensive side of the ball. Because of injuries, none of the three — offensive lineman Dimitri Tsoumpas, slotback Nik Lewis and running back Jon Cornish — will be in uniform Friday as the Stamps take on the Argonauts in Toronto.

    The Calgary Stampeders are proud to host the annual Calgary Stampeders Charity Golf Tournament in benefit of the Stampeders Foundation.
    Calgary Stampeders players, alumni, coaches and management will be joined by sponsors, season-ticket holders and Stampeders Foundation supporters for a day on the links followed by a dinner reception at the golf course.

    Calgary Stampeders' Nik Lewis likely out for rest of year
    It seems Nik Lewis didn’t get the news he was hoping for.
    Originally slated to miss six-to-eight weeks with a broken right fibula, the Calgary Stampeders veteran slotback underwent surgery on the injury Thursday and is now expected to miss the rest of the season.

    Calgary Stampeders star Jon Cornish won't start Friday in Toronto
    The Jon and Matt Show has been playing to rave reviews for some time now.
    But with Jon Cornish unable to overcome a thigh injury in time to take on the Toronto Argonauts with the rest of the Calgary Stampeders on Friday at the Rogers Centre (5:30 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770), Matt Walter will take over the leading role with a new Jon — in the form of recently-promoted practice-roster rookie Jonathan Williams — standing in for the CFL’s second-leading rusher.

    Calgary Stampeders put Grey Cup loss behind them ... and switch hotels in Toronto
    In the football world, nine months is an eternity.
    So, 272 days since the Toronto Argonauts defended Rogers Centre turf in a 35-22 Grey Cup win, the banged-up Calgary Stampeders are back at the so-called centre of the universe.

    5 Key battles to watch in Calgary Stampeders, Toronto Argonauts tilt
    The Stamps offensive line has been stingy all season long, as Jones has stepped right in as a rookie and played like a savvy veteran. The freshman will be tested once again, however, with Mitchell providing the challenge Friday. It’s a group effort, but if Jones can keep Mitchell — who has 10 sacks over the past two seasons and change — out of Kevin Glenn’s face in the passing game, and clear a hole or two in the run game, it will go a long way.

    Finding silver lining during Calgary Stampeders injury storm
    Jon Cornish has a bum leg, while Nik Lewis broke his getaway stick.
    Mo Price turned an ankle, while Joe West popped out his shoulder.
    Four playmakers, four occupied injured reserve spots.
    Not exactly ideal.

    Stamps receiver Lewis undergoes surgery, tweets that his season is all but over
    John Hufnagel gently broke the news Thursday some 3,400 kilometres east of the operating room where Nik Lewis underwent surgery to mend his broken leg.
    “From the latest report I got, no, it’s not likely,” the Calgary Stampeders head coach/general manager said when asked if Lewis will return this season.

    Stampeders limp into the defending champions’ house
    Dave Dickenson spotted a reporter loitering in the lobby of Toronto’s Royal York Hotel Thursday afternoon and made an offer of employment.
    “Do you want to play this week?” the stone-faced Calgary Stampeders offensive co-ordinator asked.
    He was joking.
    We think.

    Former Dinos star Matt Walter excited for his first CFL start
    Matt Walter is an esteemed graduate of the petroleum land management program through the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business.
    In his down time, he works as a land man.

    Ricky Ray on a roll as Argos host injury-plagued Stampeder
    Ricky Ray's on a roll, and he knows it.
    The veteran quarterback has a completion average approaching 90 per cent over his last three starts and is a big reason why Toronto is the CFL's hottest team. That's not exactly good news for an injury-plagued Calgary Stampeders squad that will face the Argonauts at Rogers Centre on Friday night.

    Holding the Line: Pass Protection Key for Argos
    Toronto's offensive line has been a key factor in the Argonauts' success on offence and they are ready for the likes of Charleston Hughes and the Stampders on Friday.
