--Terrell Owens in the CFL?  TSN is reporting the Eskimos have put Owens on their neg list.  It means the Eskimos can speak to the 44 year old to see if he interested in returning to the game.

--Duron Carter is going to play defensive back for the Riders Thursday in Ottawa.  Head coach Chris Jones says the plan is to have Carter play solely on the defensive side of the ball. Shaq Evans will likely draw onto the roster for Carter who is taking the spot of Nick Marshall.

--Halifax Regional Council received a private briefing Tuesday from the company hoping to bring a CFL team to the Maritimes. Mayor Mike Savage confirmed councillors met with representatives of Maritime Football Ltd., but would not discuss the nature of the talks.Savage told Global News Tuesday that Maritime Football Ltd., had ``advanced'' their case in such a way that had firmed up the business model.

--Sports Minister Kirsty Duncan says national sporting organizations will lose their federal funding if they don't immediately disclose to her office any allegations of abuse or harassment that occur within their ranks. Changes to funding agreements that are effective immediately also require sporting associations to establish an independent third party to investigate all allegations of abuse and have mandatory prevention training in place by April 2020. The changes come as the sporting world reels from numerous cases of sexual abuse and harassment of athletes, including more than a dozen members of Canada's national ski team who were abused by coach Bertrand Charest in the 1990s.
Charest was convicted a year ago of 37 offences of sexual assault and exploitation _ and athletes have since said Alpine Canada told them to keep quiet about the abuse for fear of losing corporate sponsorships.

--The Ottawa Senators have traded winger Mike Hoffman, hoping to solve an ugly off-ice issue involving star defenceman Erik Karlsson and his wife. The Senators sent Hoffman to the San Jose Sharks, who then dealt him to the Florida Panthers. All told, the two transactions involved four players and six draft picks. Melinda Karlsson recently filed an order of protection against Hoffman's fiancee alleging harassment and cyberbullying.

--The Regina Red Sox moved to 7-6 on the season with an 8-4 win over Brooks.  The same two teams will meet tomorrow night at Currie Field in a 705 start.
