CALGARY - Maurice Price and Joe West are collectively known as MoJoe.

More like Mo or Joe.

Since the pair of Calgary Stampeders wideouts made their CFL debuts in 2012, it’s been essentially one or the other available on any given week.

Two full campaigns plus one week in ’14 have given the pass-catchers 37 regular-season opportunities to wreak havoc on opposing defences together, with Price playing the role of deep-threat and West’s crisp route-running offering the Stamps a reliable wide-side weapon.

They’ve been on the field together, however, for just five games during that timeframe.

That number isn’t going to change anytime soon, either, with Price’s broken hand expected to sideline him six-to-eight weeks, while West, who was on the practice field Monday morning at McMahon Stadium for the first time in over a month, is finally inching closer to a return.

“Me and Mo, we talk about it all the time, like, ‘How many times have we been on the field together?
