The Edmonton Eskimos have some healthy reinforcements on defence.

Strong-side linebacker Don Unamba and defensive back Anthony Orange are healed and ready for action after stints on the six-game injured list.

Unamba suffered an upper-body injury during the Eskimos Week 1 victory against Montreal. The 30-year-old had a breakout season in 2018, named a CFL all-star for his strong play and Edmonton went after the talented defender in free agency.

Orange was a CFL all-star last season and free agent signing too, coming over from the B.C. Lions. The 31-year-old started at boundary corner in the Eskimos season-opener.

Edmonton sees two high calibre players come back to help a defence that’s allowed the fewest points in the CFL (126). Strong unit gets stronger.
