The Montreal Alouettes figure to have two rookies
starting in their defensive secondary
With injuries to cornerback Mark Estelle (shoulder)
and safety Matthieu Proulx (hamstring),
the Als figure to start import Chris Smith at safety
and either Paul Woldu or Rayshaun will start
at strong-side cornerback for veteran Davis Sanchez,
who moves to the weakside for [Mark]Estelle.
...The magnitude of Thursday night's game can't be overlooked.
The Als can't afford a fourth straight loss
with the reality of playing their next two on the road
against East Division opponents Winnipeg and Toronto.
Veteran linebacker Reggie Hunt called it
the most important game of the year,
while Trestman said it would be a mistake
to take the 1-4 Ticats lightly.
