Broken hand won't stop Coe

Scott Coe won't be picking up his second hole-in-one anytime soon.

Six weeks after sinking his first ace on the links, the Stamps linebacker suffered a broken left hand in Thursday's loss in Montreal.

"Unfortunately I won't be able to hold a golf club any better than I did before," said Coe, gingerly holding out his horrifically swollen mitt.

"I might be able to putt, that's it."

Coe jammed his hand five minutes into the 30-18 loss, but came back to play most of the night despite the pain and inability to close his fist.

"I came out and knew something was wrong as (athletic therapist) Patty (Clayton) noticed a bone moving in my hand," said Coe, who will wear some sort of cast in Friday's game against B.C.

"I'm not sure what Patty's going to do -- he's pretty inventive when it comes to that kind of stuff.

"He'll plaster me with whatever is functional. If it's a big club (on the end of his hand) so be it."

The Stamps will also be able to count on Marc Boerigter next week after the receiver stayed home to nurse a burst bursa sac in his right knee suffered against Edmonton.

"If we would have played today or tomorrow I would have been okay to go," said Boerigter, well aware many figured his absence had more to do with his shaky start to the season.

"If I came out and said it was a knee injury people would ask 'Does he really have a knee injury or is it just his turn in the rotation?'

"It's sort of a double-edged sword. I don't really care what some people might think, I know what it is."

As for the club's battered defensive line, head coach Tom Higgins said "the worst-case scenario" would be to have Demetrious Maxie play one more game before returning to the sidelines as a Stamps scout.
