Eskimos import DT Almondo Sewell has returned to Edmonton after being released from Regina General Hospital. 

Sewell was taken to hospital as a precaution during the third quarter of Saturday's 14-9 loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders after he sustained a neck injury returning a punt.

All tests came back negative for spinal fracture and he will be assessed further by Eskimos medical staff.

The game was stopped for nearly 10 minutes as Sewell received medical attention on the field and was then stretchered off and taken to hospital.

A native of Buff Bay, Jamaica, the 26-year-old Sewell is in his third season with the Eskimos.
