TRANSACTIONS | Phillip, Sandjong sign with Edmonton

Jordan Hoover also returns to active roster

EDMONTON – The Edmonton Elks have signed nationals Shaydon Phillip (DB) and Rossini Sandjong (DL).

The signings were announced Tuesday, with the players subsequently moved to the team's suspended list as they complete their required quarantine period.

Sandjong was taken 59th overall by Edmonton in the 2020 CFL Draft. The ​ Longueuil, Que., played at York University (2016-19), and was a two-time OUA all-star, including on the first team in 2018.

Also announced Tuesday was the return of Jordan Hoover to the active roster. Hoover had been placed on the six-game injured list on August 3.
