--Bad news for the BC Lions. They have placed receiver Manny Arceneaux on the six-game injury list with a torn knee ligament.  Arceneaux has played in all nine Lions games this year and leads the team in receptions with 32 catches for 553 yards and one touchdown. He suffered the injury Saturday in a three point loss to the Riders.

--Duron Carter says he wants to prove himself to his coaches and new teammates in Toronto. Argos head coach Marc Trestman says it will be a while before Carter plays as he won't suit up for the back-to-back against Hamilton meaning his debut will likely come against the Riders.  Trestman says "I know his background, I know what he's done and I've had a couple of conversations with him," Trestman said. "It remains to be seen. "Will he come in and work? Will he get acclimated in a way that our team is comfortable with? We've got high expectations.

--Odell Beckham Jr. has agreed to a five-year extension with the New York Giants that makes him the highest-paid wide receiver in football. The three-time Pro Bowler can receive a maximum $95 million over the course of the deal, with $65 million in guaranteed money. The 25 year old had at least 90 catches, 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns in each of his first three professional seasons. The No. 12 overall pick in the 2014 draft was quickest to 200 receptions and 3,000 yards in NFL history, needing just 30 games to accomplish both feats.

--Blue Jays first baseman/DH Kendrys Morales had his home run streak snapped at seven games by the Baltimore Orioles, who ended an eight-game skid by defeating the Toronto Blue Jays 7-0 on Monday night. Striving to tie the major league record of homering in eight straight games, Morales went 0 for 3 with a walk and did not hit the ball out of the infield.

--Brooke Henderson's win at the CP Canadian Open moved her up six spots in the world rankings.  Henderson is now #8
