EDMONTON - Toronto quarterback Ricky Ray says receiver Chad Owens is a "special player," whose return to action Saturday afternoon in Edmonton should bring new life to the Argonauts offence. Kenny Young Ravens Jersey . But to Eskimos defensive end Odell Willis and head coach Chris Jones, Owens is simply another player in a blue uniform to be shut down. "We get paid just like he do," Willis said Friday. "If he plays, thats good, Im glad hes back. But at the same time hes just a normal player. We dont put nobody on no pedestal. "Him coming back, if they feel he helps them, kudos to them. But well just come out and play Eskimos football." And Jones, in his first year as head coach of the surprising 6-1 Eskimos after spending the previous two years with the 3-5 Argos, said his defence will continue to "do what we do." "You cant let one guy change what your philosophies are," he said. Watch the coverage live on TSN starting at 3:30pm et/12:30pm pt. For Ray, just having Owen back and doing what he has always done will be more than enough, even through the Argo offence still ranks third in the league in points scored and managed a 2-2 won-loss record in his absence. "Hes a special player who does a lot of things very well," Ray said of Owens, who was the CFLs leading receiver and punt returner when he got injured in Torontos 34-15 loss to Calgary in Week 3. "We want to get the ball into his hands because of what he does after the catch. "He makes me look good, I can throw that short stuff and he turns it into long gains." While Owens is a huge return for Toronto, the Eskimos will have a significant addition to their roster as well in linebacker J.C. Sherritt, the 2012 most outstanding defensive player who has played only one game this season because of a lower body injury. Where and how much he will play is uncertain, but Sherritt is just glad to finally get back on the field. "Its definitely been frustrating," Sherritt said. "I expect to play the whole game but if I play one snap Ill play it to the limit but Im just ecstatic to suit up, have pads on and not be watching it from inside the locker-room." In his absence, Rennie Curran, Dexter McCoil and Otha Foster have filled the linebacking roles on a strong defence that ranks in the top three of virtually every important defensive statistic. "I knew in training camp we had something special and with coach Joness defensive scheme and athletes on this team I knew we had a chance to be really special," Sherritt said. "We have a long way to go to get to that championship calibre but were on our way." Owens missed the last four games on the six-game injured reserve list with a left foot injury. He said he spent that time watching and studying the Argos and the CFL, learning about himself and the game."I was able to learn more and think about my own personal game and some of the things that Ive done and critique myself and see what I can do differently when I get back because whats on film is what they saw 5-6 weeks ago," he said. "So Im trying to bring not a whole lot different game but I got a chance to add a little bit more to what I do." Custom Baltimore Ravens Jerseys .

However, Arsene Wenger has repeatedly told anyone willing to listen that finishing in that spot is more important than winning a cup competition.PRETORIA, South Africa - Oscar Pistorius is a "paradox" whose past triumphs as a sprinter crossing the finish line with raised arms contrasted sharply with the daily, severe limitations that he endured because of his disability, a physician testified Thursday at the runners murder trial. Wayne Derman, a professor of sport and exercise medicine at the University of Cape Town, said in court that the contrast likely contributed to stress and anxiety for Pistorius, who fatally shot girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp through a closed toilet door in his home. He testified for the defence, which wants to show that the athlete had a deep sense of vulnerability and it was a factor in what he has described as a mistaken shooting. "Youve got a paradox of an individual who is supremely able, and youve got an individual who is significantly disabled," said Derman, who has worked with South African Olympic and Paralympic teams and has treated Pistorius over half a dozen years. He noted that Pistorius anxieties included concern about flying. "He has a specific fear of being trapped somewhere without being able to move very rapidly," Derman said. Refeerring to Pistorius decision to confront a perceived threat on the night he killed Steenkamp, Derman said "fleeing was not an option" because the runner has no lower legs. Orlando Brown Jr. Jersey. Pistorius, 27, says he killed Steenkamp on Feb. 14, 2013 by mistake, thinking there was a dangerous intruder in his home. He shot her while on his stumps. The prosecution says he intentionally killed the 29-year-old model after the couple had a Valentines Day argument. Pistorius, who is free on bail, faces 25 years to life in prison if found guilty of premeditated murder, but he could also be sentenced to a shorter prison term if convicted of murder without premeditation or negligent killing. Additionally, he faces separate gun-related charges. During cross-examination, prosecutor Gerrie Nel said Derman, the physician, was giving "character evidence" rather than "expert evidence" and questioned whether the witness was capable of giving testimony that would work against Pistorius defence. "The truth would come before my patient," Derman said. Nel countered: "You cannot give evidence against your patient, sir."
