Demonte’ Bolden needed to take out some frustration.

Unfortunately for Henry Burris, he just happened to be the target.

The Calgary Stampeders defensive tackle wasn’t happy as he was forced to watch the first seven games of the CFL season.

He finally made his debut on the weekend in the Nation’s Capital and made the most of his opportunity.

“It felt great to smell the field and be out there with everyone again,” Bolden said. “That’s what it was about for me — to enjoy it.

“I missed the camaraderie and the field.”

Bolden partially tore his MCL in the regular-season finale last fall at BC Place and then couldn’t get on the field as Corey Mace and Micah Johnson scooped up the starting roles.

With both Mace and Johnson out last weekend, Bolden got his chance and produced a sack and a forced fumble on separate plays against the host Ottawa RedBlacks in a 32-7 victory.
