Elliott brought in six of 10 targets for 88 yards in the Eskimos' 24-18 loss to the Stampeders on Saturday.
Elliott was given an opportunity as a starter and responded in fine fashion, co-leading the team in receptions and targets while checking in second to Ricky Collins in receiving yardage. The fourth-year pro was even the intended receiver on Trevor Harris' last-gasp pass attempt with one second remaining, but the ball was knocked away at the Stampeders' four-yard line. The 30-year-old only had two catches coming into the contest, but he was the beneficiary of Greg Ellingson (undisclosed) and DaVaris Daniels (undisclosed) going on the one-game injured list prior to the game. It remains to be seen if Elliott will see anywhere the same amount of volume in both snaps and targets if his pair of sidelined teammates are back in action for a Week 9 matchup against the Redblacks.
