HAMILTON -- The Calgary Stampeders were shocked to see teammate Cam Yeow loaded into an ambulance last night, taken to hospital with an apparent neck injury.

Yeow was one of four Stampeders injured at Ivor Wynne Stadium in a 20-17 loss to Hamilton.

"I saw him down on the ground and it's unfortunate," said teammate Scott Coe.

"I trust our medical staff has taken the proper precautions because he is a teammate and a good friend."

Yeow, a first-year Stampeders linebacker acquired from Ottawa in the off-season dispersal draft (first round, fourth overall), appeared to injure his neck tackling Hamilton quarterback Jason Maas near Calgary's goal-line in the third quarter.

Yeow, a 27-year-old native of Surrey, B.C., sat up while being attended by Calgary's medical staff before being moved to the ambulance.

Linebacker Brian Clark also injured his right hamstring just five plays earlier, while defensive end Rahim Abdullah suffered an ankle injury and did not finish the game.

Receiver Ken-Yon Rambo sustained an ankle injury but remained in the game.

Yeow was drafted by the Renegades in the 2005 Canadian college draft.

"They are taking precautions by taking (Yeow) to the hospital," said Stampeders head coach Tom Higgins. "Just to make sure it's nothing more serious."
