REGINA -- Edmontons Tyler Thomas and John White, and Saskatchewans Keith Toston will do their best to find holes while plugging them at the same time. Thomas and White ignited a punchless Eskimos offence Friday night by combining for 153 yards rushing in Edmontons 19-14 victory over the host Saskatchewan Roughriders in CFL exhibition action at Mosaic Stadium. Thomas carried the bulk of the load for Edmonton and registered 96 yards on 12 carries. White added 57 yards along the ground, including a 41-yard touchdown run in the third quarter that gave the visitors a 16-14 advantage. Hugh Charles, in his seventh season in the CFL, is the lone veteran on the Eskimos depth chart in the backfield. Charles had two catches on Friday for 13 yards. "It has been a crazy ride for us during training camp," said White, who added one catch for 22 yards. "Its a friendly competition with all of us. I want Tyler to do well, I want Hugh to do well and I want to do well. "Ball out -- thats all we have to do." It was the Eskimos backups that spurred Fridays second-half comeback. Second-string quarterback Matt Nichols threw for 155 yards, most of which came in Edmontons 14-point third quarter. Nichols, the backup to starter Mike Reilly, found Adarius Bowman for a 20-yard touchdown strike and later handed off to White for his long touchdown burst. Thomas showed his versatility the previous week when he led the Eskimos in rushing with 24 yards and tacked on 38 yards on three receptions. Eskimos head coach Chris Jones wouldnt tip his cap to which running back has the inside edge for the starting job. "(Thomas) was hanging on to the football," Jones deadpanned. "Well find out in a few days (who our starter will be)." CFL teams have to make final cuts before 10 p.m. Eastern time Saturday. Toston finds himself in a similar position as his Eskimos counterparts. Hes battling Anthony Allen and Jermaine Thomas for the Riders No. 1 running back spot. With the departure of Kory Sheets to the NFLs Oakland Raiders, the defending Grey Cup champions have a big hole to fill in the backfield this season. Tostons 67 yards rushing on seven carries Friday night helped his cause in that tight race. Allen had 39 yards along the ground on 10 carries and Thomas was held to eight yards. "At this point, we have all battled as brothers for this job," Toston said. "Whoever is blessed with the opportunity to be that number one guy is going to ride with it and Im sure the next man will cheer him on." Roughriders head coach Corey Chamblin hinted the job might be one accomplished by committee. "I think theres still something that needs to be proven at that spot," he said. Darian Durant looked sharp for the Riders. He was 7-for-11 passing for 113 yards and two touchdowns, both to Taj Smith. Reilly completed nine of 15 pass attempts for 60 yards.

The No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 draft said he has added more than 15 pounds in the past year, which should make him better equipped to take on NFL blockers. "I definitely feel stronger," Jordan said. "I needed it. Last year I was definitely too light to be out there trying to go against some of those offensive tackles." Jordan was on the field for less than a quarter of the Dolphins defensive snaps in 2013, which meant only modest dividends from a player who received a $13.3 million signing bonus. He excelled as a pass rusher for Oregon, but at 6-6 and less than 250 pounds, the rookie had trouble finding a home in the Dolphins 4-3 defence. A stronger Jordan should be a better fit at end, and he said the additional bulk hasnt cost him any speed or quickness. At 24, he expects to get even heavier as he grows older. "Have you seen my frame? Does it look like Im getting too big?" said Jordan, who has long arms and legs. "I would never sacrifice my speed for weight." Plus, he said, the extra weight comes in handy on days on Monday, when the temperature was near 90 by the time practice ended. "If you can come out in this heat, game time will be cake," he said. Jordan blames his slow development last year in part to the lingering effects of rightt shoulder surgery in February 2013.dddddddddddd He missed much of training camp and said he was never 100 per cent last year. "Its hard to get better health-wise when you have live bullets each Sunday," he said. "It was a mental thing, because I was hurt and I was thinking about it a lot." The shoulder also kept him out of the weight room, but now hes healthy and able to take full advantage of the Dolphins off-season program, including a lifting regimen that has helped him to put on pounds. Coach Joe Philbin likes what he sees from a heavier Jordan. "The size can be an asset in the running game, and he still looks to be moving very well," Philbin said. "And hes starting to play faster. You notice his play speed getting better -- probably theres less thinking, and more familiarity with what were asking him to do and how to do it." One of Jordans tutors has been former Dolphins Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Taylor, whose has a similar physique with long limbs. Taylor has been working with Jordan two or three days a week this spring. "Thats a bonus on my part," Jordan said. "Hes a cool dude, and hes showing me how to use my length. Hes dropping a lot of knowledge." Jordans fast enough to drop into pass coverage, and he lined up in several places on the defence during Mondays practice. He also worked on special teams, as he did at Oregon and as a rookie. "I can help this team," he said, "in a lot of ways." ' ' '
