The Calgary Stampeders will be without star slotback Kamar Jorden for a third-straight game due to a hamstring injury, the team revealed in its injury report on Friday.

The Bowling Green product has made 39 receptions for 539 yards and three touchdowns in seven games this season. He most recently dressed in Week 7 against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Jorden missed the entire 2019 regular season as he completed his knee injury rehab but returned to action in the Western Semi-Final, making two catches for 15 yards. 

He earned West Division all-star honours in 2018 despite playing just nine full games before suffering a season-ending knee injury against Edmonton in the Labour Day Classic. Though he played barely half the season, Jorden still ranked fourth in the West with 944 receiving yards and he was sixth in the division with six touchdown catches.

Jorden, who first signed with the Stamps in 2013, has played 39 career regular season games for Calgary and has accumulated 191 catches for 2,793 yards and 18 touchdowns.

The Stamps visit the B.C. Lions on Saturday with kickoff slated for 7:00 p.m. ET.
