Tony Tompkins was dynamite for the Eskimos last year. This year, the kick-returner has struggled.

Tompkins is expected to sit this week leaving kick return duties to someone else.

"I wish we had done a little better than we did this year," Tompkins said. "Unfortunately it just didn't happen."

Tompkins burst onto the scene last year with three punt returns and a kickoff return for a touchdown.

This year Tompkins hasn't broken a single kick for a touchdown.

"It got to a point where every time I got the ball, I was trying to do too much to try and score," Tompkins said. "I was not just focused on getting the ball and trying to get what I can."
