Fred Stamps continues to impress with his ability to take a hit.

The Edmonton Eskimos receiver was back at practice Sunday, after being tattooed by Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive back Demond Washington in Thursday’s 26-3 victory.

“It’s good to have Fred back,” said Eskimos head coach Chris Jones. “As far as the injury is concerned, I don’t know what it was per say, I just know that our trainers have told me that he’s fine to go. He’s a tough character and always has been.”

Stamps was caught late by Washington coming across the back of the end zone. Washington was assessed a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty on the play.

“I feel good,” Stamps said following practice. “I feel healthy and am ready for Calgary (on Thursday).”

Stamps had to leave the game due to the hit and was taken to a local Winnipeg hospital for evaluation. He’s since been cleared to play against the Calgary Stampeders Thursday at Commonwealth Stadium.
