NEW ORLEANS —The Hornets say starting point guard Jarrett Jack is expected to
be out at least a week because of soreness in his left knee. Stephen Hill Jersey . Jack had already missed
three games because of the injury when he returned on Wednesday night in a loss
to Chicago. Jack played nearly 28 minutes against the Bulls, scoring only four
points to go with three assists, well below his averages of about 15 points and
seven assists. Jacks absence means the Hornets are without four of their top
players for Friday nights game against Portland. The Hornets also are without
shooting guard Eric Gordon (sore right knee), power forward Carl Landry
(sprained left knee) and seven-foot forward Jason Smith (concussion). Hornets
coach Monty Williams says Greivis Vasquez is expected to start in Jacks place.

a critical moment in favour of a pinch hitter just 11 days ago, the Toronto Blue
Jays catcher has responded with some impressive power numbers. EDMONTON —One
month after a crushing defeat in Regina, the Edmonton Eskimos knew they had to
be better against the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Friday night. They got some
revenge as Joe Burnett returned a fumble 44 yards for a third-quarter touchdown
Friday as Edmonton returned from a bye week with a 28-20 victory at Commonwealth
Stadium. “Our defence played a very gutsy game,” said Eskimos head coach Kavis
Reed. “Our tackling wasnt the best but they created turnovers and made the stops
when we needed them.” The Eskimos, who fell 17-1 to the Riders on July 8, never
looked back after Burnetts touchdown put them up 20-17. “Burnetts touchdown was
a huge momentum change,” said Reed. “Our guys knew we need to go out and make a
play and thats the character of this football team. When adversity strikes those
guys band together and they make plays.” The Eskimos improve to 4-2 with the win
and move into a first-place tie with the B.C. Lions in the CFLs West Division.
The Eskimos also knotted the season series with the Riders, with the third game
scheduled to be played in Edmonton in October. “That first game in Saskatchewan,
we knew that wasnt us,” said Eskimos quarterback Steven Jyles, who passed for
282 yards in the contest. “Offensively we knew that we gave them that win. We
knew we couldnt play like that anymore.” The Roughriders lost their third
straight game to drop to 3-3 and take a share of third in the West with Calgary.
“We didnt start well and we didnt finish well,” said Saskatchewan head coach
Corey Chamblin. “We had too many penalties, too many turnovers and we gave up
too many explosions. We didnt play team football or winning football tonight.”
There was a long delay early in the third quarter after a collision between
Edmonton defensive back Ronnie Prude and Saskatchewan receiver Terence
Jeffers-Harris. Prude was taken off the field on a stretcher after suffering
what appeared to be a neck injury on the play. “You just pray for a guy like
that and pray that he be strong,” Jyles said. “Were keeping our prayers out for
him and his family. We heard some good news that he was moving his fingers and
all of that stuff, so hopefully he will be OK and will return.” When the game
resumed, the Roughriders took a 17-10 lead after quarterback Darian Durant went
up the middle on a quarterback, running 27 yards into the endzone. Edmonton
responded with a field goal on the heels of a 41-yard pass to Matt CCarter to
make it 17-13.dddddddddddd Two plays later the Eskimos were back in front as
Chris Thompson plowed into Dressler and forced a fumble. Burnett picked up the
ball and blazed 44 yards for the touchdown and a 20-17 Edmonton advantage
heading into the final frame. The Eskimos started the fourth with a punt single
and then increased their lead to 28-17 as a 32-yard pass to Fred Stamps set up a
six-yard TD run by Calvin McCarty. Saskatchewan wasnt done yet, however, as Kory
Sheets took a short screen pass and blazed 76 yards to the Edmonton five.
Unfortunately all they would get out of it was a field goal. Durant was picked
off by J.C. Sherritt at the Saskatchewan 38 with under two minutes to play but
Edmonton didnt get any points out of it. The Riders marched back and tried a
late Hail Mary into the endzone but Thompson picked off the final pass to end
the game. In the first quarter, the Roughriders had a strong opening drive, but
stalled out in the red zone and had to accept a 25-yard field goal from
newly-signed veteran kicker Sandro DeAngelis. Edmonton also moved well down the
field to start, but also settled for a 23-yard field goal from Grant Shaw.
Edmonton took a 10-3 lead early in the second after a couple of long passing
plays. Jyles was able to find Nate Coehoorn for a 49-yard gain, setting up a
30-yard TD pass on a nice sideline catch by Cary Koch. Saskatchewan tied the
game just before the half after a bizarre highlight reel play. Durant passed to
Weston Dressler who was leveled by Weldon Brown. However, the ball remained in
the air and bounced off Brown and another Eskimo and into the arms of Taj Smith
who took of for a 57-yard gain during the confusion. Riders backup QB Drew Willy
came in for a one-yard plunge with 16 seconds left in the opening half. Notes:
The Eskimos are the only team in the CFL to remain perfect on their home field
this season. Edmonton has now won five games in a row at home against the Riders
and 15 of its last 17 over Saskatchewan at Commonwealth Stadium. ...The Eskimos
are a badly banged-up team with 17 players officially listed as injured and
several others also on the limp… The Riders added DeAngelis to their lineup
for the game to share kicking duties with Chris Milo. ...The Eskimos also had a
new face in the lineup as they signed former Toronto Argonaut defensive tackle
Claude Wroten earlier in the week in time to play in Fridays game. ...The
Eskimos reached 11 million fans who have attended a game at Commonwealth Stadium
for the match. ’ ’ ’
