Looks like your D's job just got much easier for Thursday. Jesse Lumsden has a minor injury which, because of the short recovery time (Sun-Thurs) is forcing him to sit out this week. Tre Smith and Terry Caulley are very capable backups so watch for them.
No, not serious. It's just a precautionary measure.
He got a helmet to the knee on Sunday and it strained a couple of ligaments. He was still able to finish out that game, but they don't want to aggrevate it next game. He will play on the 25th vs. Edmonton
It was a lot of fun watchin lumsden play against bc. He seemed to enjoy anitiating contact. I would like to see him run with the ball. Looked like he was using the damaged shoulder to make the hits. Prooving a point maybe. So hopefully he has a big game against the cats for revenge and another big game against Edmonton in the west final. Like redemption! So far one game and no injuries.... New record
Great to see him get that touchdown, and the reaction on the sidelines. I hope they give him some more time at RB against winnipeg. That shoulder looks fine, his balance on that last play looked a little off though...
a lot of people say i was way off the mark when i said this was a good pickup. then they said "i told you so" when he got hurt... again... but calgary picked up his option hear, and as far as i know he will be comming to training camp to compete for a roster spot. i still want to see jessie get this shot. he could add something to the stamps. maybe a healthy lumsden is the missing peice.
Well if he can somehow not be Humpty Dumpty once again for the n'th year, anything he contributes would be a totally unexpected bonus. No way the Stamps should be relying on anything coming from Lumsden though. Still a reclamation project. Saying he is the missing link to winning the Cup is something I would not bank on at all.
I guess I know in my heart he's not the missing piece. Honstly, in just so disgruntled about loosing the west final two years in a row. When we won the grey cup, I thought we had a dynisty in place. Now is puke green and Montreal. With ottawa doing an expansion draft, and all the free agents... How long can we keep this team together? I eat sleep and breathe stamps football. In huff we trust!
