weekend is crucial to the outcome Edmonton Eskimos and Saskatchewan Roughriders are above that morass, both teams being almost guaranteed of at least the playoffs The only undecided aspect of their performance is which one will finish first The Riders, going into their Sunoay game in Winnipeg against the Blue Bombers, have a one-point lead with 16 points over the Eskimos who play British Columbia Lions Saturday night in Vancouver But Calgary Stampeders have an insecure hold on third place with the Lions and Blue Bombers snapping at their heels Calgary has 10 points on five wins and seven losses three more points than the Bombers and Lions who share the cellar with only three wins and a tie each Winnipeg and B C both have their work cut out for them in tangling with the West's

has an injured hand The Stampeders also could be missing two top defensive players, middle linebacker Steve Brown and tackle Fred James Ottawa reports only one serious injury to quarterback Jerrv
