What Did You Miss Monday?

--Argonauts quarterback Ricky Ray will miss ``significant time'' from the CFL season after being released from a Toronto hospital on Monday.The 38-year-old Ray spent two nights in hospital after suffering a neck injury in the third quarter of Saturday's 41-7 loss to the Calgary Stampeders. The Argonauts said in a statement late Monday that Ray was ``resting comfortably'' with family but will have to undergo more tests to further evaluate the injury and that there is no timetable for his return.

--The Riders return to practice Tuesday for the first time since their defeat in Ottawa.  It is expected we will hear whether or not Zach Collaros will be dressed for the game after suffering a concussion in the loss to the REDBLACKS

--There were nervy moments for Spain and Portugal, bout both Iberian powers are through to the Round of 16 at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Spain scored a stoppage-time equalizer to tie Morocco 2-2 and Portugal drew Iran 1-1 today, leaving both teams with five points. Spain goes through as the top team in Group B on a tiebreaker. Iran missed a glorious opportunity for a goal in added time that would have given it top spot in the group. Uruguay beat host Russia 3-0 in Group A action earlier today at the World Cup. Both teams were already through to the knockout stages. In the other Group A match, Saudi Arabia ended its tournament on a high with a 2-1 win over Egypt.

--The Detroit Tigers have agreed to terms with right-hander Casey Mize, the top pick in this year's draft. The Tigers announced the agreement before their game against Oakland. The six-foot-three junior averaged 12.24 strikeouts per nine innings this season at Auburn.

--Dwane Casey won the NBA Coach of the Year award on Monday night despite getting fired by the Toronto Raptors earlier in the off-season. Casey beat out Quin Snyder of the Utah Jazz and Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens for the honour. The 61-year-old Casey was the most successful coach in Raptors history, but was fired on May 11, five days after being nominated for the Coach of the Year award.
