CALGARY - Nik Lewis leaves behind a pretty big pair of shoes to fill.

Calgary Stampeders slotback Jabari Arthur says he’s not even going to try them on.

He’s just going wear his own.

“I’ll never be able to replace Nik and what he’s done for this team,” Arthur said.

“All I’m going to do is go play receiver, prepare like I’ve never prepared before and help our team win, like I’ve been doing for the past six years.”

Lewis, the club’s leading receiver for the past decade, broke his fibula Saturday night at BC Place.
