Appearing in all 18 regular season games and starting at guard in seven of them, Kirby made a remarkable recovery in 2014 after a season-ending knee injury the previous year.
Kirby signed with the Lions after being selected seventh overall in the 2012 Canadian Draft. He enjoyed an outstanding training camp and made the club’s starting lineup for the season-opener in his hometown of Calgary and continued his fine play as a key cog on the offensive line through the season’s first five games. In Toronto on Jul 30/13, he suffered a season-ending knee injury and spent the final 13 games plus the Western Semi-Final on the club’s injured list.
Fabien was the Lions' second selection (seventh overall) in the 2012 Canadian Draft.
