ESKIMOS

Record: 1-2

WHO TO WATCH

Fred Stamps, SB

Returning to the lineup after sitting out last week’s loss, Stamps participated in his first full week of practice since training camp, where he suffered a lower-leg injury that had severely hampered his practice time until he was finally shelved from playing a game to help recuperate.

KEY MATCHUP

The Edmonton Eskimos lack-lustre return game will have a chance to jump-start its offence against B.C. Lions coverage units that have been the weakest link on an otherwise solid squad so far this season.

INJURIES

1-Game: C Alexander Krausnick (knee), OG Scott Mitchell (knee)

9-Game: SB Adarius Bowman (knee), LB Nathan Kanya, QB Matt Nichols, OT Orrin Thompson

ROSTER NOTES

Who’s Out: LB Nathan Kanya, WR Isaiah Sweeney

Who’s In: DE Marcus Howard, LB Kyle Norris
