Who to watch

JONATHAN HUNTINGTON -- Edmonton Sun

, Last Updated: 11:57 AM ET

Eskimos: Jason Tucker

If the Eskimos are going to have any significant success, Tucker will be front and centre. He has 10 of the club's 16 receiving TDs.

Riders: Eddie Davis

Did a masterful job blanketing Geroy Simon last week and draws the assignment against Tucker tonight.

NOTES

Keyuo Craver has been benched in favour of Roosevelt Williams, who will get his second lifetime start at cornerback for Edmonton tonight ... Jonte Buhl will start at halfback, replacing Donald Brady, who has left the team to be at his ailing father's side ... Taking Craver off the roster, however, leaves Edmonton without a natural back up in the secondary. If the Esks suffer a single injury, newly activated linebacker Marcus Winn will likely be plugged into a hole ... In a dark and gloomy season for the Esks, Ricky Ray continues to be a shining light. Leading the CFL in passing, Ray will make Eskimos history with 14 more completions - passing Tom Wilkinson into first place for most completions with the Green and Gold ... By leaving receiver Trevor Gaylor behind in Edmonton, the Esks are able to activate DE Andre Sommersell to the roster. He will start on special teams ... DT Jabari Issa and OL Glen Carson will be the other scratches... The Esks have to pay Reggie Durden's salary for the rest of the year because he left the team after Labour Day. But in a smart move, stashing him on the nine-game injured list means his salary doesn't count against the cap.
