Calgary Stampeders fullback Jesse Lumsden is finished for the season.

In fact, his football future is once again a question mark as he awaits reconstructive knee surgery.

Lumsden was injured in Friday's regular-season finale against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, ending his latest comeback after just three games.

“Jesse suffered a severe knee injury. It's an ACL with a little bit more damage,” Stamps head coach John Hufnagel told the media Sunday morning. “He was so excited about getting back on the field and he was doing a good job with his responsibilites, working hard and you could see the athlete he is, so it's very unfortunate.

“You just hope for the very best — that he does have a good recovery and gets back to doing what he likes to do.”

Lumsden was injured tackling Blue Bombers defensive back Brandon Stewart after a fumble recovery and had to be helped off the field after the final horn.

In three appearances with the Stamps, the 28-year-old had four rushing attempts for 40 yards and one touchdown, plus a special-teams tackle.

This marks the fourth straight season the former Hec Crighton winner will need season-ending surgery.
