Carey was placed on the six-game injured list earlier in June after he was spotted in a walking boot at practice.
The 30-year-old carried the ball seven times for 42 yards in the Stampeders' season-opening 25-15 loss to the BC Lions.
TSN's Salim Valji reported that Carey was on the field in full gear, but Dedrick Mills took snaps at running back.
First practice of the week mind you but Joshua Coker is at right tackle with the Calgary Stampeders’ first team offence…WR Luther Hakunavanhu practicing with that unit after missing last week’s game.— Salim Nadim Valji (@salimvalji) July 26, 2023

Carey was an All-Star with the Stampeders last season after rushing for a league-leading 1,088 yards and 10 touchdowns.
In Carey's place, Mills has served as the primary rusher for the Stampeders, rumbling for 330 yards and a trio of touchdowns in five games.
