Sportsnet.ca -- The good news keeps coming for the Calgary Stampeders. Less than 24 hours after manhandling the Ottawa Renegades 45-23, the Alberta club now has much reason to smile about its injury plagued quarterbacking situation.

Additionally, rookie quarterback Jason Gesser, who it was initially feared had suffered a broken left ankle in last night's victory, is now expected to miss no more than one game with what now is being classified as a "high ankle sprain."
