Calgary selected Turner in the second round (ninth overall) of the 2011 CFL Canadian Draft and he signed on May 20, 2011.


Turner played 14 games (seven starts) and had 33 tackles, three tackles for a loss of four yards, three sacks, two knockdowns, a fumble recovery and one special-teams tackle. He began the season on the one-game injury list before getting back in the lineup for Game 3. He was on the reserve list for Games 5 and 17. Turner played in the Western Final and recorded a tackle and a knockdown. He also played in the Grey Cup and registered five tackles.

Turner played 11 regular-season games as well as the West Division semifinal, the West Division final and the Grey Cup. The Bishop’s University product saw action both at defensive end and defensive tackle and recorded 11 tackles and one sack during the regular season. His season high in tackles was four and came on Sept. 28 against Edmonton. Turner’s sack was recorded on July 12 against Montreal. He added one tackle in the playoffs.


In his rookie season, Turner played in all 18 regular-season games as well as the West semifinal.

Turner’s sacks came in back-to-back games to close out the season, on Oct. 30 at Montreal and Nov. 5 against Winnipeg.
