EDMONTON - OK, so the Alouettes might not be Montre-all they’re cracked up to be anymore apparently, coming off the wrong end of the biggest comeback in CFL history in a 38-27 loss at the hands of the Calgary Stampeders. But if the Edmonton Eskimos are expecting them to be pushovers again this week, things could go really bad, real quick. Especially with a handful of these factors affecting the Green and Gold heading into Thursday’s game (5:30 p.m., TSN, 630 CHED).

1) JUST SWELL: A ruptured bursa sac looks about as ugly as it sounds. And it had to happen on the one limb of the one player the Eskimos least wanted it to. While quarterback Mike Reilly is passively waiving off the contusion on the elbow of his throwing arm, TSN commentator Matt Dunnigan told the panel he had the same thing once and it affected him all season long.
