Stampeders defensive back Wes Lysack insists he didn't toss and turn Tuesday night.

"My wife might've," he said with a grin. "But not me."

Yesterday's CFL trade deadline passed without any major deals at McMahon Stadium.

For Lysack, a veteran safety in his seventh season as a pro, staying put on deadline day hasn't always been a sure thing.He was shipped from Calgary to Winnipeg in a mid-season swap in 2004, then sent back to the Stamps just before the deadline the following fall.

"There's no doubt it used to be on my mind because two years in a row, I got traded within a couple days of the deadline," Lysack said.

There was only one minor deal yesterday.

The Argos sent OL Clifton Washburn to the Riders for a fifth-round draft pick.

SQUABBLE HISTORY NOW

Teyo Johnson and Brandon Browner are over it.

Two days after making headlines with their post-game squabble in Montreal, the Stamps teammates have put the incident behind them.

With several reporters in the locker-room after Monday's lopsided loss to the Alouettes, Johnson and Browner got into a heated argument.

"People want to make a big deal out of it, but (Browner) and me are both high-energy guys. We shook hands. By the time we got on the plane, that was squashed," said Johnson.

"The page has been turned," Browner added.

LEWIS LEAVES EARLY

Stamps SB Nik Lewis left yesterday's practice early after being kicked in the ankle, but head coach John Hufnagel didn't seem too worried about his status for Saturday's game.
