Eskimos getting creative in managing injuries

WINNIPEG – With all the moving parts on an injury depleted Edmonton Eskimos depth chart, it’s a wonder the club can survive the Canadian Football League’s ratio requirements in any given game let alone lead the pack with a 7-0 record.

Patience and persistence paid off for Jones

Chris Jones is accustomed to having his pass rushers pursue a quarterback. But the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ head coach, defensive co-ordinator and general manager has proven that he can complete the chase if necessary — as evidenced by a Tuesday CFL trade in which Vernon Adams Jr. was obtained from the Montreal Alouettes. “This is not […]

Adams was acquired from the Montreal Alouettes on Tuesday along with a fifth-round pick in the 2018 CFL draft. Saskatchewan surrendered home-grown […]

Already-solid Stampeders defence getting better with health

Considering the way the injury-bug hit the Calgary Stampeders defence this season, it’s sort of astounding that the team has allowed fewer points than anyone else in the CFL.
