THE HURT PARADE

WR Ed Hervey (knee), DL Antico Dalton (concussion), SB Andrew Nowacki (finger) and RB Ron McClendon (healthy scratch) are out. WR Kwame Cavil, WR Chris Kelley, SB Rob LeBlanc and RB Elvis Joseph are in ... B.C. is missing SB Tony Simmons, OL Moe Elewonibi, DB Eddie Linscomb and LB Kelly Lochbaum.

NOTES

It figures to be an aerial battle, with Edmonton leading the league in passing attempts, completions, yards and TDs, and B.C. leading the league in completion percentage, yards par catch, fewest interceptions thrown and QB rating ... The Esks were 1-2 against B.C. last season, but are the last time to win in B.C. Place (25-9 in July of last season) before the Leos put together an 11-game home winning streak ... LeBlanc, a Vancouver native, draws in in front of his family and friends tonight ... Ricky Ray needs three TD passes to tie Damon Allen for fifth (76) on the Esks all time list ... Ray needs 11 completions to tie Jason Maas for eighth on the Eskimos all time completion list with 743 ... On this date in 1995, Martin Patton of the Shreveport Pirates scored a CFL record five-rushing TDs against Winnipeg.
