Lions pivot not good to go

Injured B.C. Lions quarterback Dave Dickenson showed up at McMahon Stadium yesterday and said that was a good sign his concussion symptoms are subsiding.

Dickenson was cleared for exercise this week but said symptoms arise when his heart rate goes up.

"The pilot did a nice job because there was no reason for an elevated heart rate on the flight," Dickenson said with a laugh. "The bye week will give me a chance to try some things. I won't be out there until I can practise with the guys."

Dickenson is hopeful this injury isn't the end of his playing career and will support his 'mates from the sidelines.

"If the symptoms won't go away, that's my body telling me it's time," Dickenson said. "As long as I'm listening to it and being honest with people, I'll let my body tell me what to do."

SOUNDING GOOD

The Stamps are testing a new sound system tonight. Four new speakers will be set up, one at the end of each players' bench.

If the new system is well received, the Stamps will look to add video screens in the four spots to enhance the entertainment package.
