Stamps Receiver Malik Henry Ruled Out for Season

A long day at practice for the Malik Henry and the Calgary Stampeders after Henry suffered a patellar tendon injury. Henry missed 2023 season due to injury.

Calgary Stampeders receiver Malik Henry has ruled out for the 2024 CFL season. At practice Tuesday Henry suffered a patellar tendon injury. Fellow Stamps receiver Auden Tate also left practice early with injury.

“It’s a heart-breaking situation after seeing Malik work so hard to come back from his achilles tendon injury last year,” head coach and general manager Dave Dickenson said in a statement. “As an organization, we will do everything we can do to support Malik. In the meantime, we have to continue in our preparations for the season and have everyone step up to help fill the void.”

After Henry was unable to get himself off the field due to his injury practice was ended early.

Henry has been with the Stampeders since 2021 during which time he has started 19 games, 13 of which were in 2022. Henry played on 3 games last season, making 14 receptions for 228 yards and a touchdown. His season was ended due to a season-ending injury to his achilles.

2022 was a standout season for Henry, making 62 receptions for 1,023 yards and 8 touchdowns, ranking 8th in the league for both touchdowns and receiving yards.

2024 was expected to be a breakout season for Henry who was excited to bounce back after such a substantial injury. The 27-year-old Georgia product was meant to start in the game against the Lions on Saturday but was kept on the bench for precautionary reasons after the rail delay.

The 6 foot 5, 228 pound American receiver Auden Tate left practice due to injury as well though his injury has yet to be specified. Tate spent 5 seasons in the NFL, 4 of which were with the Cincinnati Bengals. In his career Tate made 61 receptions for 799 yards and 2 touchdowns. This is Tate’s first season in the CFL after getting no play time with the Atlanta Falcons in 2022.


Announced today, the Stampeders have signed Canadian receiver Colton Hunchak as well as Canadian offensive lineman Alexandre Marcoux. Hunchak is a familiar face for the Stamps as he was with the team from 2019 until 2023. In that time he has entered 50 games, starting 5. He has 606 career receiving yards on 45 receptions and 0 touchdowns.

Marcoux, from McGill University, was selected 33rd overall by the Stampeders in the 2023 CFL draft. The 6 foot 2, 295-pound lineman from Levis, Quebec made 25 starts in four seasons at McGill. He played left tackle, left guard, centre, and right tackle.

On Monday the Stampeders signed American defensive lineman Jacques Bristol. Bristol suited up for 57 games for Central Michigan, getting 144 total tackles and 13.0 sacks in his time. Standing 6 foot 1, 295 pounds, there is a chance we see Bristol play in Winnipeg Friday night.
