EDMONTON -- Edmonton Eskimos defensive back John Ojo ruptured his right Achilles tendon during practice Monday and is out for the season.

Ojo led the Eskimos in interceptions last season with five, including one for a touchdown, in his rookie year.

He had four tackles in the West Division final versus the Calgary Stampeders, and recorded a tackle and a special teams tackle in Edmonton's Grey Cup victory over the Ottawa Redblacks.

The six-foot-three, 205-pound international back was named to the division and CFL all-star teams in 2015.

That's unfortunate for this player. 1st preseason game of the year and he's done.
Similar situation and injury that Darian Durant went through last year.
Next SCHMO fan knocking Durant for his 2015 injury will quickly be reminded how their starting DB Ojo at six-foot-three, 205-pounds
who was also named to the division and CFL all-star teams in 2015 suffered the exact same thing.

Really it's shitty for Darrian last year and it's Shitty for Ojo this year.
