Nothing to do now but wait.
For the game, for the cuts.
Training camp came to an end Thursday for the Eskimos. Friday is walk through day and Saturday is game day as the Eskimos play host to the Saskatchewan Roughriders on The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium in the final preseason game of 2016.
The vets who are assured spots on the team, like offensive lineman Tony Washington are happy to see this day come “Made it through another one, we are ready for the season now” said the 30 year old, who is at his first CFL camp without Chris Jones on the staff. He says at beginning of camp things weren’t as smooth as they are now. “At first we kind of pushed back a bit, but once everyone bought in it turned out really good. Very fast, we are going to have a quick offence”
That offence will be on display vs the Riders on Saturday, then to start the regular season against Ottawa on June 25th.
As Camp wrapped up new head coach Jason Maas declared it a success “I thought it went well, we planned it out to the point where we didn’t waste any time and the players did a great job coming out every day and competing.”
Saturday will be the last chance for any hopefuls to earn jobs, cut down to the final 46 man roster is on Sunday.
