John Grace is ready for the B.C. Lions.

The four-time CFL defensive player of the week said he'll likely suit up for Friday's match in B.C.

Grace, who left early in Saturday's game after straining an abdominal muscle on an attempted interception, was kept out of yesterday's practice for precautionary reasons.

"It feels a little tight, sort of like a deep bruise," Grace said. "But I've got a couple of days to let the soreness work its way out."

The standout linebacker, who should garner strong consideration for CFL defensive player of the year honours, has been icing down the injured area.

"Ice and anti-inflammatories. That's about all you can do."

IMPRESSIVE REHAB: Ex-Stamps receiver Kamau Peterson returned to practice yesterday after missing two games with a knee injury. But the Winnipeg Blue Bombers will check to see whether the knee tightens up overnight.

"Kamau Peterson looked real good," said head coach Jim Daley.

"He's been in all week -- every day of our break working out with (athletic therapist) Ross (Hodgkinson). He's done field work, gym work, agility work. He's pushed his knee as hard as he can push it and it showed (yesterday) that he's made a lot of progress."
