Although JoJuan Armour doesn't want to reveal details of the incident, the Calgary Stampeders linebacker wants everyone to know he's sorry.

The five-year CFL veteran apologized yesterday for the altercation Tuesday that caused head coach John Hufnagel to leave him at home for a 28-17 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Friday that clinched first place in the West Division.

At the team photo yesterday, Armour was still sporting a black eye and swollen nose but his pride was more wounded than his face.

"For the fans, I've never been a troublemaker. More than anything, I'm sorry I let them down for my absence," Armour said.

Armour's injuries didn't keep him from playing against his former team.

Hufnagel left him out for disciplinary reasons, and the coach wouldn't say whether or not Armour would return next Saturday against the B.C. Lions in the regular-season finale at McMahon Stadium.

"I had a chance to talk with JoJuan and he seems genuinely sorry for putting himself and the team in a bad situation," Hufnagel said.

"He apologized and wants to move forward. That's what we're doing."

Armour reportedly told an ex-Ticats teammate he was trying to come to the aid of a woman when he was then beaten up.
