- The Leos are 8-0 and showing no signs of slowing down. With the Grey Cup slated for B.C. Place this November, it should be noted that the last team to win a CFL championship on their own turf was B.C. in 1994.

Calgary Stampeders

- DT Demetrious Maxie is out four to six weeks after breaking his left fibula on Thursday in Montreal. Terrence Patrick will take his spot on the line, and the team has brought back training camp cut Jerame Southern.

Edmonton Eskimos

- Tony Tompkins made a boo-boo when he surrendered a punt single Saturday night with the Esks trailing the Argos 21-18 late in the fourth. "I guarantee you that won't happen again," coach Danny Maciocia told The Edmonton Sun.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats

- Many feel head coach Greg Marshall's job is safe for the rest of the season -- despite an 0-8 start -- which has some believing one or more of his assistants may fall on the sword, namely O-co-ordinator Jamie Barresi.

Montreal Alouettes

- Head coach Don Matthews is shaking up his defensive line in the wake of another home loss. The Montreal Gazette reports that DE Marc Megna is back in the doghouse, and DT John Nix is joining him.

Ottawa Renegades

- P Pat Fleming broke his thumb during the opening kickoff on Friday night in Winnipeg and could miss as many as six weeks. One possible replacement is QB Kerry Joseph, who did some punting before turning pro.

Saskatchewan Roughriders

- At least they're upset about their four-game losing streak. The Leader-Post reports that C Jeremy O'Day and DT Scott Schultz had to be separated by teammates last week after a scuffle broke out.

Toronto Argonauts

- GM Adam Rita said newly signed FB/RB Sean Millington will play special teams tomorrow night against the Stampeders. "He's like (quarterback Damon Allen)," Rita told The Toronto Sun. "He's a freak of nature."
