Stamps get defender Joe Burnett back from mash unit

Calgary has activated defensive back Joe Burnett from the mash unit, per sources.

Burnett was placed on the six-game injured list on September 13 after he was hurt against Edmonton September 9. His stint was extended on November 2 making it a total of seven games missed.

He started three games at boundary corner and three at strong-side linebacker in Calgary’s first 11 games, the other five he spent as a backup at SAM. During those 11 contests, he made 11 tackles and one interception.

The one-time West all-star is a versatile defender who could be back in the lineup for the West Final the Eskimos visit McMahon Stadium with the right to play in the Grey Cup on the line.
