The Calgary Stampeders were without star running back Ka’Deem Carey at practice on Monday due to a hamstring injury.

The 29-year-old recorded 14 carries for 92 yards and two touchdowns in the club’s 35-28 loss to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Saturday.

Carey is currently the league’s second-leading rusher with 72 carries for 471 yards and five touchdowns on the year. He has also made 13 receptions for 114 yards.

The team was also without centre Sean McEwen (ankle) and boundary cornerback Tre Roberson (knee). Both players left this past week’s game due to injury and did not return.

McEwen is a two-time CFL all-star who has started all six games at centre. The former first-round pick has started 20 games with the Stampeders since joining his hometown team as a free agent in February 2020 following a four-year stint with the Toronto Argonauts.

Roberson has started five games at boundary cornerback this season, recording 17 defensive tackles, one interception, and one forced fumble. He is in his fourth season as a member of the team and was named a CFL all-star in 2021.

The Stampeders (4-2) are slated to visit the Ottawa Redblacks (1-6) on Friday, Aug. 5 at 7:30 p.m. CDT.
