The Edmonton Elks have added American defensive lineman Keisean Lucier-South and National receiver Ente Eguavoen to their practice roster.

Lucier-South joins the Elks after playing four seasons with UCLA Bruins from 2016 to 2019, where he recorded 122 total tackles, 7.5 sacks, one interception, 15 pass knockdowns and four forced fumbles. A former five-star recruit, the California native went undrafted in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Eguavoen signed with the Montreal Alouettes in January of 2022, playing in one pre-season game and registering one reception for 19 yards before being released on June 4. Collegiately, he played for the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks, where he was voted an OUA first-team all-star as he made 31 catches for 523 yards and two touchdowns in only six games in 2021.

In a corresponding move, the Elks released American linebacker Brian Cole, American defensive lineman Ben Davis and Global offensive lineman Nour-Eddine Seidnaly.

Davis appeared in two regular-season games for the Double E and started at middle linebacker in Week 5 against the Calgary Stampeders, recording six total tackles in his two appearances.

Cole and Seidnaly did not see any game action for the Elks after being signed to the practice roster last year.
