With the exception of one area, the Eskimos' lineup for tomorrow night in Vancouver has become pretty clear.

As expected, linebacker A.J. Gass has been moved to the injured list to make room on the 46-man roster for Trevor Gaylor.

The lanky wideout will be part of the 42-man playing roster and will start tomorrow night beside slotback Mookie Mitchell.

With non-import Taylor Inglis leaving the team, there is another Canadian spot available on the 42-man roster and either Will Loftus or J.P. Abraham will fill that spot.

But Maciocia isn't tipping his hand.

"I'm not giving anybody that (announcement) because I don't have B.C.'s roster, so it doesn't make sense for me to divulge my 46-man roster. It would be crazy on my end," said Maciocia.

It is also possible that both Loftus and Abraham play and another Canadian comes out.

FINISH LINES: J.R. LaRose keeps taking vicious licks, but he's still ticking.

Although he suffered his third concussion of his football career - junior and professional - last weekend, he will play tomorrow night on special teams in Vancouver against the B.C. Lions.

"It would have been tough for us to replace him," said special teams coach Malvin Hunter, offering high praise for the 22-year-old Edmonton native.

LaRose was plowed by teammate Marcus Winn during a punt coverage play in the second half last Friday.

"Our helmets collided and my neck snapped one way and that was it, out I was," said LaRose."I wasn't out cold, I was still conscious, but I couldn't move my legs. I tried to get up, but I couldn't."
