    Stampeders receiver just wants to play
    Scott Fisher, CalgarySun.com

    Anthony Parker would have done anything to play in the Grey Cup game.

    Including playing on a broken foot.

    “You do what you’ve gotta do,” Parker said. “It was a big game, 100th Grey Cup and all that.

    “I wanted (the coaches) to have the opportunity to make a decision on whether or not I was ready to play.

    “Unfortunately, they didn’t think I was ready, but at least I put in the effort.”

    There’s no doubting Parker’s willingness to get on the field.

    He’s just had trouble staying there.

    The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder suffered a concussion in pre-season last spring, then was put in a walking boot after a high-ankle sprain put him on the sidelines.

    Then he broke the other foot in the regular-season finale.

    It’s no wonder the former U of C Dinos star wasn’t able to record a reception during the injury-ravaged season.

    “That’s a big part of the game,” Parker said of avoiding sick bay.

    “Assuming I can do that, I believe I can play with any of the guys out there.

    “I’ve done my part this off-season with trying to get my body in the right condition.”

    Perhaps this would help him stay healthy? ;)

    That may fit a jersey better than this would.

    All Stamps fans want to see him play, as well. Let's hope he can get on the field as a receiver & do well.
