The Edmonton Elks have released American offensive lineman Antonio Garcia and American receiver Caleb Holley.

Garcia played in both preseason games for the Elks and started at left tackle in Edmonton’s season-opening game against the B.C. Lions. The club allowed four sacks in a 59-15 loss in Vancouver.

Holley registered two catches for 66 yards and one touchdown in two preseason games for the Elks and was on the one-game injured list in Week 1. The five-year veteran has made 157 career receptions for 1,963 yards and seven touchdowns as a member of the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Ottawa Redblacks.

Edmonton’s home-opener is scheduled for June 18 against the Saskatchewan Roughriders at Commonwealth Stadium.
