C.J. Gable missing Eskimos game against Lions

C.J. Gable has been highly productive since Edmonton acquired via trade with Hamilton.

Since October 2, when Gable made his Eskimos debut, the 30-year-old has run for 215 yards and two touchdowns on 37 carries while adding 41 receiving yards and one touchdown. Edmonton was 2-0 in those games.

Rookie runner LaDarius Perkins, who whas played in seven games rushing for 319 yards and one touchdown on 71 carries to go along with 19 receptions for 140 yards and one TD, takes Gable’s place in the starting lineup.
