The Calgary Stampeders could really use a guy like Johnny Forzani right about now.

As the Red & White continue to lose receivers at an alarming rate, the hobbled wideout started to get a little nervous.

“Hopefully, no more receivers go down,” Forzani said. “They might put me in tomorrow.

“I could be on the red-eye tonight.”

If Forzani’s injured ankle was far enough along, that wouldn’t be far from the truth.

But the 24-year-old has been on the nine-game injured list since undergoing off-season ankle surgery.

With slotback Nik Lewis out long-term with a broken fibula and wideout Maurice Price back on the injured list with a wonky ankle, at least Forzani has some positive news to report.

“(The specialist) gave me his blessing to start progressing (with workouts),” Forzani said.
