It was every competitor's nightmare, but Sears tried to keep his chin up. "It ate me up, man," the defensive back said after practice on Thursday. "Me feeling like I could be one of the prime players to help the team win, and not being able to do anything but yell stuff from the sideline and help in the meeting room. It only does so much. But I tried to keep things moving forward and keep a positive attitude so they could feed off that."
Now, it's official: with Demond Washington out with an injury of his own, Sears is getting back in. Although he's been healthy the last two weeks, he waited until he felt fully confident after reviewing film of his reps to come off the nine-game injured list, he said. He'll figure in at boundary cornerback, a position he played a handful of times last season, including both games against the Stampeders.
Offensive lineman Glenn January wasn't surprised to hear Hall didn't know what he was up against, where the football gods are concerned. "Max probably didn't even know where Calgary is, so let's think about that for a little while," he joked of Hall, a newcomer to the Canadian game.
But seriously, though. "I don't think there's any magic potion to what (the Stampeders) are doing," January said. "They've had really good teams, I think that's probably been the biggest factor in the equation... (the record in Calgary) really doesn't have too much of a bearing on our potential of victory this week."
