OTTAWA — Despite his desire to enter the banking world full-time one day, Jon Cornish, plain and simple, is a football player.

A football player who hasn’t been able to ply his trade since a Kyries Hebert clothesline June 28 sent him to the trainer’s table indefinitely with a concussion.

That made Saturday’s charter flight to Ottawa all the more meaningful.

“I think that’s the No. 1 thing I’ve missed — both at work and playing football — it’s just about being around your co-workers and teammates,” Cornish said, as the running back held court with the media outside the Stamps locker-room Saturday at sparkling TD Place. “For me, it’s the most important part of the experience. I love my teammates and co-workers, so it’s nice to be back part of it again.”

Cornish is one of the guys again.

But how long until the reigning CFL Most Outstanding Player becomes the guy again?
