Edmonton Eskimos' running back Troy Davis is looking for his first rushing touchdown of the season. He's carried the ball 292 yards so far, 90 of which were in the July 7 win over the Lions at Commonwealth Stadium. He'll need to keep his head up for Lions' linebacker Javier Glatt. The Canadian Football League's defensive player of the week is hoping to show some of the form he exhibited last weekend when he led B.C.'s defense in the 28-8 win over the Toronto Argonauts.

B.C.'S JAVIER GLATT ON EDMONTON'S TROY DAVIS:

Speed and agility: "He's got tremendous balance, he's fast, he's agile. I respect him, he blocks well, he catches the ball well. We've gotta be good and gang tackle."

Vision: "His vision is what separates him from the rest of the backs. He'll break a tackle, he'll knock your block off."

Hands/feet: "He's a quality back, good feet, good hands, he does it all. They'll make him the focus point of their attack."

Resiliency: "He's respectful, he takes a hit, he gets up and plays again. He might deliver a hit the next play."

Trash talk: "He doesn't talk at all, he does his talking with his play."

EDMONTON'S TROY DAVIS ON B.C.'S JAVIER GLATT

Speed and agility: "He's one of the better linebackers in the league. I don't play differently against him, I just get the ball and look for an opening."

Vision: "I'm hoping to get 15 to 20 carries so I'll need to avoid him and B.C.'s other linebackers."

Hands/feet: "I have to use my feet to get around him and not let him get a grip."

Resiliency: "I've got to focus on my own play and hope he's not ready for the next one." Trash talk: "No, but if he does I'm not listening."
