Esks gets one of three receivers back
By Gerry Moddejonge, QMI Agency
One out of three ain’t bad.
That’s how many injured receivers Ricky Ray is going to get back for sure in time for Monday’s game in Calgary.
Marcus Henry, who went down with a concussion three weeks ago in Montreal, is scheduled to return to the lineup on Labour Day, while slotbacks Fred Stamps and Adarius Bowman both remain questionable.
Stamps didn’t practise Friday, but Bowman did.
“You never know with those skill-position guys, they’re kind of on a day-to-day basis whether they’re really ready to go or not,” Ray said. “In my experience, one time they look really good and then all of a sudden, they’re not playing.”
But he said he will take what he can get.
“You’d definitely like to have everybody that you’ve had,” Ray said. “We’ve just had a horrible rash of injuries come through that one position.
“Hopefully in the next week or two we’ll get everybody back and be at full strength. That will definitely help out.”
