WHO TO WATCH

ESKS 2-0-0

Ron McClendon

The scatback takes over from the injured Elvis Joseph and makes CFL debut.

ALOUETTES 1-1-0

Terry Vaughn

The perennial all-star and former Esk, Vaughn had 11 catches for 160 yards last week.

THE HURT PARADE

The Esks are minus offensive linemen Patrick Kabongo (healthy) and Rhett McLane (healthy), RB Elvis Joseph (ribs) and SB Andrew Nowacki (healthy) for Week 3 ... RB Robert Edwards (toe), WR Sylvain Girard (groin), OL Paul Lambert (elbow) and LB Kevin Johnson (quad) are off Montreal's 40-man roster this week.

NOTES

Esks kicker Sean Fleming hasn't missed in his last 14 regular-season field goal attempts. Fleming's last miss during the regular season was Sept. 18, 2004, at B.C. Place Stadium ... The Green and Gold have struggled at Percival Molson Stadium since the CFL returned to Montreal in 1996. In the nine games played at the Mad House on Mount Royal since then, Edmonton is 2-7-0. The Esks posted a 34-24 victory on July 24, 1997, and Ricky Ray was at the controls for a 20-19 win back on Oct. 5, 2003. In three of the losses, Montreal's defence held Edmonton to nine or fewer points on three occasions and 20 or fewer points in a total of six games ... Montreal slotbacks Terry Vaughn and Ben Cahoon rate as Iron Men. Entering the 2005 season, the pair lined up for a combined total of 300 CFL games. Vaughn was only scratched four times over the course of his career, while Cahoon missed but two games.
