MONTREAL — Give the Edmonton Eskimos credit for not letting up on Friday, even though they ended up going into a fair amount of injury debt.

Even when they were leading by 16 points in the final three minutes of what turned out to be a 33-23 win over the Montreal Alouettes, the Eskimos continued playing their hearts out to try and keep their opponents out of the end zone.

With linebacker J.C. Sherritt not surprisingly back on the one-game injured list with a foot fault this week and starting cornerback Joe Burnett added to the six-game shelf after injuring his leg in Tuesday's practice, the injuries kept piling on in the game.

It began with the running backs, as Noel Devine left late in the half with a lower-leg injury, before John White didn't return for the second after already posting 100 yards on seven carries with a touchdown and a hand injury.
