EDMONTON - The Edmonton Elks announced a trio of roster moves Tuesday. DB Ethan Makonzo (NAT) has been added to the active roster and QB Michael Beaudry (NAT) to the practice roster, while LB Wesly Appolon (NAT) was placed on the six-game injured list.

Makonzo is the older brother of Edmonton's top selection (fourth overall) in the 2022 CFL Draft, Enock Makonzo. The Montreal native played U Sports football at the University of Montreal and was drafted 46th overall by the Montreal Alouettes in 2021.

Beaudry rejoins the Elks practice roster after being released last week. The 24-year-old rookie recorded a defensive tackle in one pre-season appearance, against Winnipeg.

Appolon was drafted 49th overall by the Elks in last month's draft. The Tuskegee University product was injured during Edmonton's season-opener against the B.C. Lions last Saturday.

Edmonton’s home-opener is June 18 against the Saskatchewan Roughriders at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium.
