OTTAWA - As the Ottawa RedBlacks continue to cross the days off the calendar, now just a few days away from their first-ever CFL exhibition game -- Saturday in Saskatchewan -- there's going to be plenty of heartbreak.

There's a hollow feeling that goes with being cut, being told a team is going in another direction and it's time for you to go home.

For Anton McKenzie, it was a different feeling, yet one that still had plenty of hurt.

The 33-year-old linebacker, in his ninth CFL season, was sidelined with a torn biceps early on in training camp.
