Wood­man on in­jured list

The Chatham Daily News - - SPORTS -

Ed­mon­ton Eski­mos de­fen­sive back Josh Wood­man of Chatham is on the six-game in­jured list. Wood­man has al­ready missed two games, so he’ll be el­i­gi­ble to re­turn Satur­day, Oct. 21, against the B.C. Lions. The Ur­su­line grad­u­ate is in his sec­ond CFL sea­son. He’s made nine de­fen­sive tack­les and one spe­cial­teams tackle in nine games. The Eski­mos (7-4-0) have fallen to third place in the West Di­vi­sion af­ter los­ing four con­sec­u­tive games. They lost 25-22 to the first-place Cal­gary Stam­ped­ers last Satur­day. The Eski­mos will try to stop their skid when they visit the Toronto Arg­onauts this Satur­day (4 p.m., TSN). Head coach Ja­son Maas said the Eski­mos’ lack of dis­ci­pline has been an is­sue all year. “Sit­ting peo­ple might be the next step,” Maas said in the Ed­mon­ton Sun. “As a coach, you don’t want to get to that be­cause you feel like you hurt your foot­ball club when it’s re­ally good play­ers that are com­mit­ting those penal­ties and you’re hav­ing to sit them be­cause of dis­ci­plinary rea­sons. But if it has to get to that, then I guess it has to get to that.”
