Mitchell returned to practice in Week 9 but did not dress against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Arbuckle got the start and went 22 of 35 for 260 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.
“We want to build up towards the game,” Mitchell told Stampeders.com following practice. “(We’ll) do some more stuff tonight and tomorrow morning and just feel strong coming into tomorrow.”
Carey has been out since Week 7 after he was forced to leave the game against the Ottawa REDBLACKS due to a lower-body injury. Through four games this season, he’s put up 204 yards and a pair of scores on 37 touches in the run game.
Jackson was placed on the six-game injured list after suffering an upper-body injury against the BC Lions in Week 3. He was the lead back for the Stamps in 2018, putting up 924 rushing yards and three touchdowns while adding 168 yards on 23 receptions. So far this season, Jackson has 117 all-purpose yards, with 69 of those coming through the air.
“I’ve got to earn the right to carry the football for this team,” Jackson said. “I’ve got to earn the respect of my teammates again, and earn the respect of my coaches again. I have to earn the respect of the league again. I know what’s in front of me and I’m excited.”
