Edmonton Eskimos wide receiver Fred Stamps underwent emergency abdominal surgery on Saturdayday at a Winnipeg hospital.
Stamps was injured early in Edmonton's 28-16 loss to the Blue Bombers Friday night but finished the game.
"Fred was experiencing significant discomfort after the game," said Eskimos general manager Eric Tillman. "He was taken to hospital for tests which determined that there was some internal bleeding and surgery was required. The surgery was successful and Fred will remain in hospital for a few more days. Our medical staff is projecting that he'll be sidelined 4–6 weeks."
Stamps, who had 3 catches for 41 yds on the night, leads all CFL receivers with 33 receptions for 619 yds and five touchdowns this year.
Football is secondary at a time like this and Fred will be in our thoughts and prayers during his recovery," added Tillman.
Real tough news for Edmonton, who are already missing Bowman. Does anybody know when he's supposed to be back?
