It’s a place Corey Mace has been before, and one he was hoping to never see again.

But that’s exactly where the Calgary Stampeders defensive tackle is: On the injury list, done for the season.

The 6-foot-3, 285-pounder had trouble hiding his disappointment Wednesday as he addressed the media with his left arm in a sling, getting set to undergo season-ending surgery on a torn shoulder labrum later this month.

“It just sucks, man, to be honest,” Mace said.

One and done.

That’s how two of the last three seasons have ended for the affable Vancouver native.

In 2011, it was a ruptured Achilles tendon that ended his CFL season in Week 1.

After making all 18 starts in 2012, this time it was B.C. Lions offensive lineman Ben Archibald landing on Mace’s shoulder, driving it into the ground and tearing the tissue around the joint.
