    It was actually full contact (no equipment) up to 1 yard past the line of scrimmage and since I wasn't at my high school WR playing weight I was an offensive lineman. Got my hands under a guys arm pits and he pounded up on my elbows, all I heard was pop, pop, pop and my muscle was in a different location.

    I'm sure that they'll be looking at bringing in another guy or two to have a look, but they have two import tackles that have started in the CFL, another that they've invested a season into developing, an import guard that looks capable of sliding out to Tackle, an NI guard that played most of a season there, and a high draft pick with an NCAA pedigree that is a natural tackle. I don't think you 'replace' SirV, a top-3 Tackle in the league, but they have planned for contingencies. I fully expect them to have better, more prepared guys in house than are available off the street at this stage.

    It's a blow. Watching SirV in one-on-one drills gave me a new appreciation of his ability and why he is where he is with his craft. My hope is that he'll stay around the team and work with the guys to help them continue to improve and refine.

    Yeah, this really sucks.

    Just once I would likely to see the team get through TC without one possible season ending injury.

    Itís hard to judge. As you say, one tends to pay more attention to their own team. Another consideration is that when itís not your team, who you think of as important/significant doesnít necessarily match who they think of as import/significant because you donít know the finer details of the roster &/or that player as well as you know your own.

    Could you bring in Gott on the inside and shift someone out if Draheim isn’t the answer?

    I believe that Gott is a center & still on the RB roster?

    Our line changed when Draheim came back from injury last year, biggest issue will be depth behind him, lets hope one of these guys takes a step forward this year.

    He is only 31. I would give him a call. He was an All star level player and even if he is out of shape and needs a few weeks I bet he could contribute around week 3 at a higher level than anybody else available .

    I think this would be a good option. I thought "O". was older being in the league for so long. Rogers and another standout OT , Stanley Bryant of Winnipeg, are 33. Wondering if Bond has the mobility to play OT long term based on what he showed last year. Looked like he was carrying a few extra pounds , might have trouble handling Willie Jefferson one on one.

    Hopefully we have eyes on some prospects that are in NFL camps or ex AAF Olinemen unless the better ones are already committed to the XFL. Rogers signed for good money and with him on the IR we shouldn't go cheap replacing him. Just my take on it but replacing Rogers with anyone that was here last season is like replacing a farm tractor with a garden tractor.

    Was wondering if Winnipeg might make J. Hardrick available. I thought he did a good job filling in with the Bombers when there were injuries.

    I’m playing MoD outside again and slide Bond into Guard. No messing with the ratio. Trade experience for experience.

    Re: 2019 Edmonton Eskimos Training Camp

    Found out today that Maurice McKnight got a job offer outside of football and is no longer with the team. Would have been competing for a depth position behind Orange when healthy, and as mentioned, Glass has looked good in that role to my eye so far.

    Walk-through suggested that Larry Dean will not play tomorrow, in addition to those that are injured/knicked.

    Gott is a free agent, but has been at guard more than centre recently.

    How does this not make things better?

    There is the potential to save 2/3 of SirV's salary against the cap (2x 6-game IR), which could fund some other additions potentially, and still have him back for the stretch run and playoffs. Not as good as having him for the full year, but if he can get back this season that's a huge improvement from what it looked like a few days ago.

    Draheim is better than many people are giving him credit for, and has played with Trevor in Ottawa previously.

    Not sure what you mean.

    Depending on the type of tear, how his surgery & post-op course go, and how his rehab goes, it could be as little as 3 months. The fact that they are actually coming out & saying that it is not season-ending actually bodes well. In addition, he’ll be 6-gamed, so his salary won’t count against the cap.

    This is bad injury, sure, and it sucks for him (poor guy), but an injury guys can come back from a lot easier than some others (vs concussions & knees & Achilles)
    It could be a whole lot worse!

    Sounds like special teams are in mid season form.

    Thank you for being the voice of sanity. Serves me right for posting at 10:41 local when my brain isn't thinking straight.

    Because in the first game of preseason they give up a TD? I get our special teams where bad but come'on.

    I'm sure you dont mean the yards Robinson has put up on returns.. because we aren't use that production around here

    Dave Campbell is in midseason form too, mixing up Joey and Nick Bosa.

    I'd place Draheim at LT and O'Donnell or if he is ready Saxeliid at RT.

    Re: 2019 Edmonton Eskimos Training Camp

    Special Teams looked a lot better than what we've been seeing in previous years. On the return TD against us it was just simply a case of one player not staying in his lane so when the tackle was missed at the point of attack, there was wide open space for the returner to run to, very correctable in film and not surprising considering these guys have only been in camp for 6 days. Aside from that though our returners were having massive holes and giant lanes to run through all day long. After today I'm hopeful that we might see something resembling a competent return game this year finally.

    I agree! Both Robinson & Stangby had big returns which is a far cry from the past few seasons.
    And don’t forget—Martese Jackson who was re-signed because of his return skills was nicked early in TC & wasn’t in the lineup.
    I was also impressed with Lolley’s aggressive D which is also a far cry from the bland vanilla scheme that Benevides insisted on running...
