OTTAWA - Matt Carter admitted he didn't get much sleep Friday night.

The Ottawa RedBlacks receiver felt horrible, taking his share of the blame after fumbling the ball deep in Edmonton territory in the final three minutes of Friday night's 10-8 loss to the Eskimos.

But, despite being together for less than three months, the RedBlacks are a brotherhood, a family, and Carter's teammates had his back Saturday after a brief on-field workout at TD Place.
