Two Calgary Stampeders veterans sat out practice yesterday but one could turn out to be more serious than the other.

Linebacker JoJuan Armour had a heart murmur in his pre-camp physical and was held out of practice for further testing.

"It's something the doctors wanted to check out," said head coach/GM John Hufnagel.

"There were a couple of players who had a bit of a murmur during physicals and they wanted to keep an eye on it ... JoJuan had a blood test (yesterday) and he's going for an EKG (today)."

Starting right tackle Jeff Pilon also missed yesterday's sessions with a knee injury not thought to be overly serious.

Fellow lineman Antonio Hall is also out with an infection on his toe.

"It's been a weird camp," said Hufnagel.

Also not in action yesterday were K Sandro DeAngelis (ankle), OL Jesse Newman (ankle), R Reggie Williams (knee), DB Lakendrick Terrell (knee) and DB Perry Kyles (flu).
