    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for July 16, 2014

    Quick 6: The D-line

    In this edition of Quick 6, we grill defensive linemen Shawn Lemon, DeQuin Evans and Micah Johnson.

    Sanders named player of the week
    Jock Sanders was named the CFL's special teams player of the week for Week 3.


    Hamilton quarterback Jeremiah Masoli will see some familiar faces Friday at McMahon Stadium after being named the Tiger-Cats’ Week 4 starter in the absence of Zach Collaros.
    A pair of Stampeders — receiver Simon Charbonneau-Campeau and defensive end Shawn Lemon — are both former teammates of Masoli’s.

    Stamps notes: Walter ready to start again if Cornish doesn’t return by Friday
    Matt Walter doesn’t mind playing the waiting game. It actually keeps him quite busy.
    With Jon Cornish taking an extra day to return from his concussion suffered nearly two and a half weeks ago, Walter carried another heavy workload in Tuesday’s practice.
    He won’t mind if the same could be said for Friday’s game against the visiting Hamilton Tiger-Cats, but at the same time the former University of Calgary Dinos star wants to see his backfield mate doing his thing again soon.

    Shell and Love go from substitute teachers to substitute Stamps stars
    During the off-season, Glenn Love and Lin-J Shell took jobs as substitutes, taking over for some hard-working teachers in their respective hometowns.
    The work of being a super subs just continued as the Calgary Stampeders season started.
    When Deron Mayo and Keon Raymond went down with injuries in the Stamps 34-15 win over the Toronto Argonauts on Saturday, Love and Shell stepped in smoothly and helped shut down Ricky Ray and Co.

    Jon Cornish not practising yet, Jock Sanders ready in backfield of Calgary Stampeders
    The Jon Cornish concussion watch was supposed to end Tuesday morning.
    It did not.
    The Calgary Stampeders star running back was expected to be on the field practising with his teammates during the first day of preparation for Friday’s clash with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (8 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770), but more time was needed.
    There were no setbacks — the staff and Cornish are simply erring on the side of caution.

    Concussed Nik Lewis inching closer to return for Calgary Stampeders
    Another day, another hurdle for Nik Lewis.
    Slowly but surely, the veteran Calgary Stampeders slotback is working his way back from a concussion suffered on an inadvertent knee to the head during practice last week.
    Lewis, who was forced to miss the Week 3 CFL win in Toronto over the weekend, returned to practice in a limited fashion Tuesday, but there are a couple more hurdles for the 32-year-old to clear before the Stamps host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Friday (8 p.m, TSN, News Talk 770).

    Calgary Stampeders licking their chops at prospect of playing rookie Hamilton Tiger-Cats QB Jeremiah Masoli
    From the most-experienced quarterback in the CFL one week, to the least experienced the next.
    After holding the Ricky Ray-led Toronto Argonauts offence to just five field-goals over the weekend on the road, the Calgary Stampeders defence is now busy preparing for the exact opposite end of the CFL-start spectrum — Ray has 175 career starts on his resume — with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats set to roll out Jeremiah Masoli for his first-career start Friday at McMahon Stadium (8 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770).

    Peterson got it wrong!
    Had a good laugh with Stamps head coach and GM John Hufnagel last night on Half Hour with Huff on Sportstalk. The 4 stars of the game for Mountain View Credit Union are selected after every game by our outstanding color commentator Greg Peterson. Petsy was agonizing over who to select for the defensive player of the game. Fred Bennett or Buddy Jackson, the two outstanding corners both had super games. Greg also gave an honorable mention to Charleston Hughes. Peterson couldn’t decide so he flipped a coin and went with Jackson.
