HAMILTON - His knee healed, Dave Stala now wants to help mend his football team.

After just four games of their 2013 Canadian Football League regular season, of which the Hamilton Tiger-Cats have lost three, Stala has been activated from the nine-game injured list.

Just in time to step on to the field at the University of Guelph’s Alumni Stadium on Saturday night against a Saskatchewan Roughriders club that is the only remaining unbeaten CFL team with a 4-0 record.

“The surgery (to clean out his knee five weeks ago) was not as bad as I thought, I healed quicker than I thought, and now I get a chance to get back on the field,” Stala said on Friday after the Ticats’ walk-through.

“(The Roughriders) defence is playing good, but the way they play, I really like it. You can use it to your advantage. We’re going to take some shots down the field, but we have to move the ball and put up some points.”
