The Edmonton Eskimos have decided to start a familiar face in Toronto when they take on the Argonauts in Sunday's Eastern Semi-Final.

Former Argonaut Cory Boyd is listed as the starter on the Eskimos' depth chart while Hugh Charles will back him up.

Boyd was released by the Argonauts earlier this season and signed by the Eskimos.

Charles, who led the team in rushing with 887 yards, missed the last two games of the regular season due to a right knee injury but was medically cleared to play earlier this week.

Canadian Jerome Messam will not play.
