FIRST DOWN

After resting his injured throwing shoulder this off-season, veteran quarterback Khari Jones is throwing the ball with authority and pinpoint precision once again. "My arm feels good and that was the most important thing to me," said Jones yesterday. "I feel good every day." Jones, the winner of the CFL's 2001 Most Outstanding Player award, was released by Calgary and signed with the Esks in March. Unlike Jason Maas, Jones was able to avoid an off-season trip to the surgeon. "The shoulder wasn't good at the end of the (2004) season," Jones said. "It just needed rest. I took MRIs and stuff like that but it wasn't until I rested the muscles and let them heal themselves that it was going to get right. Now it feels 100 per cent and I'm able to make the throws that I want to make. That in itself makes me happy."

SECOND DOWN

Retired Esks centre Tim Prinsen stopped by camp for a visit and a lunch yesterday. However, Prinsen arrived earlier than planned and found himself watching the tail end of the back-to-back workouts. "It's a little tougher than I thought," admitted Prinsen, who was forced to retire as a result of injuries he suffered an automobile accident. "But now I can go to the game." ... DL Steve Charbonneau (knee), WR Ed Hervey (knee) were relegated to observer status again yesterday ... DB Maha Atogwe wound up sporting an ice pack on his right knee and was reduced to spectator status ... LB Jason Bobst, one of two Edmonton Huskies in the Green and Gold camp, was a no-show yesterday.

PARING DOWN

Non-import K Anthony Posteraro was released leaving a total of 67 players, including draft picks, in camp.
