Today marks the first significant cut down day for CFL teams in training camp. All teams must trim their rosters to 65 players (excluding non-counters) by 10pm Edmonton Time. Several teams have already made cuts, the Eskimos are currently in the process of trimming their roster before tonight’s deadline.
Day 17 of training camp at Commonwealth Stadium saw good performances from the special teams and defense but both head coach Jason Maas and quarterback Mike Reilly were not happy with the play of the offense.
The Eskimos have two full days of practices left in training camp, a walkthrough on Friday, and they will host the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Saturday afternoon in the final pre-season game for both teams.
Kick-off from Commonwealth Stadium is 2pm, 630 CHED will have the pre-game show at 12:30pm.
