CALGARY - Derrius Brooks is getting his wish.

A week ago, the Calgary Stampeders defensive back was disappointed to be left off the 42-man roster and tweeted: “At da crib chillin...GameDay!!! Wish I was suitin up tonight!!!”

It appears Brooks will get back on the field Saturday at B.C. Place against the Lions (7 p.m., TSN/News Talk 770), filling in for injured Brandon Smith.

“We had a guy go down, so I’m up,” Brooks said. “I’m coming in and making sure we don’t skip a beat on defence.
