B.C. Lions released Antonio Warren yesterday. The 30-year-old native of San Francisco appeared in five games for the Lions in 2006 recording 169 yards on 41 carries and another 169 yards and a touchdown on 17 receptions.
Lions' running back Joe Smith is the new go-to guy. He hopes to duplicate last week's debut numbers. He had 138 yards and three touchdowns against the Calgary Stampeders.
Argos' promotions department must be running out of ideas.
Tomorrow is turn back the clock night when the club will remember its 1983 Grey Cup triumph at B.C. Place Stadium over the Lions by an 18-17 score. Lions' director of player personnel Bob O'Billovich coached the Argos to victory in the CFL's first-ever indoor Grey Cup final.
Ricky Williams suffered a broken arm in Regina last weekend and won't be back until September. His stats (57 carries for 231 yards and one touchdown) have been unimpressive. Argos were selling deluxe framed keepsakes of Williams' CFL debut on June 17, including a piece of a game-worn jersey, for $129.99 to $279.99.
