CALGARY - The band is back together.

Well … one member is still missing.

But the Calgary Stampeders offensive line is the healthiest it has been since Sept. 6, when right tackle Dan Federkeil went down with a groin injury.

“It’s definitely going to help,” Federkeil said of having a healthy o-line, except for Dmitri Tsoumpas (concussion), for the biggest game of the year.

“This group hasn’t played together since I got hurt in the Labour Day rematch.

“The left side has been playing really well. We’ll get Stanley (Bryant) back this week, so that will boost the performance level having another all-star back in the lineup.

The 6-foot-6, 297-pounder says the starting five offensive linemen are so comfortable working together that they don’t need to discuss assignments on the field.
