Stamps’ Kamar Jorden to miss remainder of 2018 season

CALGARY — Calgary Stampeders receiver Kamar Jorden is set to undergo knee surgery on Thursday and will miss the rest of the 2018 season, the team confirmed on Thursday.

Jorden was injured during Week 12’s contest against the Edmonton Eskimos. The 29-year-old pass-catcher was rolled over on a late block in the second quarter and limped off the field to the sidelines before heading to the locker room and did not return.

Before his exit, Jorden had hauled in three passes for 49 yards.

Jorden was hot off a career-best game against the Winnipeg where he collected 249 yards and a touchdown on 10 catches. In 10 games this season, the six-foot-three, 204-pounder had matched his career high in touchdowns (six) and hit a career-high in receiving yards (944).
