EDMONTON — The Edmonton Eskimos have announced that Thaddeus Coleman and Don Oramasionwu will miss significant time after suffering injuries in their Week 2 game.

International lineman Thaddeus Coleman will be out indefinitely after suffering a dislocated elbow. Coleman was entering his second year in Edmonton as the starting right tackle for the Esks.

Meanwhile national defensive lineman Don Oramasionwu will miss the rest of the season with a ruptured patellar tendon in his left knee. The six-year CFL veteran would anchor the defensive line for new head coach, Chris Jones.

Both losses were suffered in Friday’s win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats as the Esks now move on to prepare for Ottawa in Week 3 without two big bodies on the line.
