    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for September 25, 2014

    Post-practice comments: Coach Huff

    Coach Hufnagel gives an injury update on various players and talks about newly-signed receiver Kamar Jorden.

    Post-practice comments: Fuller
    Receiver Jeff Fuller addresses the media after his first practice back from injury.

    Stamps look to bounce back from loss
    Stamps TV caught up with DB Keon Raymond, DB Fred Bennett and WR Maurice Price to talk about how the team rebounds from the loss in Montreal.


    The Canadian Football League schedule-makers have done everything in their power to increase the chances of dramatic late-season matchups.
    The Calgary Stampeders, for instance, are done with all four East Division opponents — Ottawa, Hamilton, Montreal and Toronto — but have yet to face Saskatchewan or Winnipeg during the 2014 regular season.
    Then there’s the case of the Roughriders and Eskimos, who will play not once, not twice, but three times over the final third of the season. That’s an awful lot of Green vs. Green action.

    Calgary Stampeders R Jeff Fuller practises with team
    Jeff Fuller can’t wait to be one of the guys again.
    But the injured Calgary Stampeders receiver, who took part in practice Wednesday for the first time since dislocating his shoulder in mid-August, wants to be more than just a guy.
    Prior to the 6-foot-4, 217-pounder going down, he was becoming a go-to guy.

    Stamps want more pressure
    One team had trouble protecting the quarterback.
    The other had trouble getting to the quarterback.
    Something has to give.
    As the B.C. Lions (7-5) continued their offensive line shuffle on the West Coast ahead of Saturday’s Week 14 clash at McMahon Stadium (7:30 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770), the Calgary Stampeders (10-2) are trying to figure out a way to dial up extra some pressure.

    BC Lions traditionally handful for Calgary Stampeders
    When you’ve lost six regular-season football games in the past two seasons, there’s a good chance no one truly has your number.
    But there’s no doubt the B.C. Lions, for a variety of reasons, have been a thorn in the Calgary Stampeders’ side.
    Since the beginning of the 2013 season, the Stamps have run up a 24-6 record.

    Stamps adjusting to moving parts in keeping offence on track
    With key injuries in every facet of the offensive structure, one could suggest that Dave Dickenson’s job as Calgary Stampeders’ offensive co-ordinator has been a little more challenging than usual in 2014.
    He may beg to differ.
    “I don’t know,” said Dickenson, slowly shaking his head. “I think every year you complain about injuries. When you look back, every year, there’s quite a few. Then we got the new turf and we thought that might have potentially given us the chance to have not as many injuries.

    Stamps notes: Fuller embraces return from six-game injured list
    Even Jeff Fuller was somewhat aghast at the severity.
    “When they told me six-game, it cut me deep,” admitted the Calgary Stampeder receiver, who suffered a dislocated shoulder back on Aug. 16 in Hamilton. “It didn’t really feel like I needed to sit out that long. But obviously the doctor did and I’m happy that the six weeks have gone by now and I’m ready to play.”
