EDMONTON — The Edmonton Eskimos activated defensive back Arjen Colquhoun from the six-game injured list on Thursday.

Colquhoun has been out of action since Week 11 after suffering a lower-body injury against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

The 27-year-old has spent his entire three-year CFL career with the Eskimos, posting 48 tackles and two interceptions in 24 games.

In 10 contests in 2019, Colquhoun has 16 tackles and a pick.

He will likely slide back into his usual field corner position and form a formidable duo with Josh Johnson on that side of the field.

The team also announced that they have placed defensive back Forrest Hightower on the one-game injured list.

The Eskimos will travel to Percival-Molson Memorial Stadium for the Eastern Semi-Final, where they’ll take on the Montreal Alouettes. The inter-divisional foes will kick-off at 1:00 p.m. ET.
