Rogers out; Jorden to start for Stamps in WSF

The Canadian Press

CALGARY — Calgary Stampeders receiver Kamar Jorden will make his first start of the year on Sunday in the Western Semi-Final against Winnipeg.

Jorden has been sidelined since Sept. 3, 2018, when he suffered a season-ending knee injury in the Labour Day Classic vs. the Edmonton Eskimos.

Veteran receiver Eric Rogers will miss a second straight contest, along with defensive end Cordarro Law. But outside of those two, who didn’t practise this week, the Stampeders will have some reinforcements for Sunday’s playoff game.

On defence, Canadian linebacker Cory Greenwood returns to the fold after being out since Sept. 14. In addition, Tre Roberson is back in the lineup at corner, while Royce Metchie is back from injury and starting at safety.

Jorden, a 6-foot-3, 204-pound receiver, was one of the CFL’s most productive receivers before being injured last Labour Day. The 30-year-old had 944 yards and six touchdowns in 10 games, averaging 17.2 yards per catch.
