Import wide receiver Scotty Anderson has fallen behind in his recovery from a bruised knee and could miss the season-opener.

Anderson suffered the injury Friday against B.C. and was expected to return to form this week.

Although he worked out with the team Tuesday, he suffered a setback and didn't dress yesterday.

"It was a bruise and all of a sudden he wasn't able to open up to full speed (Tuesday), so now we're playing it day-to-day," said Stampeders head coach Tom Higgins.

"He had a knee contusion and it bothered him a little bit. We're going to get it tested to see if it's something (more serious)."

If Anderson can't go, import Beau Gibbs would likely come off the practice roster.

The Stamps have also signed former import DB Tony Tiller as insurance after the injury to cornerback Crance Clemons (hamstring).

Clemons was hurt in practice Tuesday and still wasn't able to practise yesterday.

Tiller spent last season with the B.C. Lions but was released in camp.

"We were pleased where we were at but the moment we had an injury, with us not knowing the status and how long it will be, it only made sense to bring Tony in," Higgins said.

Non-import linebacker Scott Coe also suffered a stinger in his right side yesterday but expects to play.
