Stolen items returned

In a week of soul-searching in a desperate Edmonton Eskimo locker-room, at least something has gone right for defensive tackle Robert Brown off the field.

Police have located the stolen items - including credit cards and a cellphone - taken from his import automobile parked at Commonwealth Stadium two months ago.

"A little bit more than $2,000 (was charged to the cards)," said Brown about the alleged suspect.

"He had (dinner at) Tony Romas on me. I bought him a couple of CDs, Future Shop (was on the bill)."

Fortunately for Brown, he's not on the hook for the huge bill because he quickly reported the cards stolen.

"But to see all of that, you feel dirty," he continued. "Somebody had all your information, all your stuff."

Brown noticed the problem as soon as he walked to his car and saw the console open.

"The passenger side door was (unlocked) and everything else was locked," he marvelled.

"I don't know how you can pick a lock without (an alarm) going off."

SHORT HIT: Danny Maciocia confirmed yesterday that the Eskimos have not made any offer to offensive lineman Steve Morley and are not in hot pursuit - at the moment - of the recent cut from the NFL ... It appears Rhett McLane has a good chance of getting his first start of the year on the offensive line tomorrow, but nothing has been officially announced. McLane replaced Glen Carson in the second half on Labour Day.

FINISH LINES: As expected, FB Mathieu Bertrand has been moved to the one-game injured list with a shoulder injury. The X-ray on Bertrand's left shoulder came back negative ... Dan Comiskey has been transferred from the one-game injured list to the 46-man roster, but isn't expected to play tomorrow against the Stampeders. Raleigh Roundtree will continue to take his spot.
