, THE CANADIAN PRESS EDMONTON - The Edmonton Eskimos??no-practice, no-problem policy with Fred Stamps appears to have hit a snag.
The star slotback was rested through the majority of the Eskimos??training camp and used sparingly in practices for the first two weeks of the Canadian Football League season.
With the rest, Stamps responded with nine catches for 150 yards and two touchdowns in the first two games.
When the Eskimos??depth chart for Saturday?? game against the B.C. Lions was revealed, Stamps was listed as the backup to sophomore Shamawd Chambers.
After Stamps sat out the entire week of practice, plus Friday?? walkthrough, Eskimos head coach Kavis Reed finally confirmed there is uncertainty with Stamps??health.
??red is going to be a game-time decision for us,??Reed said. ??e went through the same protocol last week and w michael kors outlet website e??l do the same this week. We??l get him out on the field early (on Saturday) and we??l make a decision.??
Given that Stamps has been idle, or at best, on the team?? exercise bikes on the sidelines, the prognosis doesn?? look good for Edmonton?? top receiver the last four years.
On Friday, Stamps said he felt OK, but that his status wasn?? for him to decide.

??ou know what, I don?? know. I leave that up to coach and everybody, but it?? just tough,??he said. ???? a little banged up, but I want to play.??
To Stamps??credit, he?? toughed his way through whatever has michael kors outlet website ailed him over the past few weeks and gone out and produced on game days. Doing so with little to no practice, he said, isn?? easy.
??t?? hard, because you need to practise,??he said. ?? michael kors outlet website t?? hard to play without practise. The good thing is we fell off on the first one (a Week 1 loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders), but we got the second one (a win on Sunday against the Hamil michael kors outlet website ton Tiger-Cats) and we??e got to continue to build and get better.??
If Stamps doesn?? play on Saturday, it will end his streak of 27 consecutive games played.
As expected, Eskimos defensive end Marcus Howard won?? play Saturday and was taken off of this week?? roster. Brandon Lang will replace Howard, which opens the door for non-imp michael kors outlet website ort Justin Capicciotti to back up Lang.
Howard spent much of the 2012 season injured as well, dressing in just six games.
??e felt that Marcus?? history (of injuries) would lead us to need someone of Brandon?? calibre to be able to play those games that we projected Marcus would not be playing and history sometimes repeats itself,??Reed said. ??hat?? why, by design, we wanted to have a defensive line and have people who could fill in and not have a drop off. There will be a drop off, obviously Brandon isn?? Marcus yet, but we feel it won?? be that significant.??
