--The Riders are 4-4. They handed the Stampeders their first loss of the season with a 40-27 win in front of a sold-out crowd at Mosaic Stadium.  Brett Lauther kicked six field goals while Nick Marshall returned an interception for a TD while running one in as well. 

-- The Edmonton Oilers signed free agent forward Scottie Upshall to a professional tryout on Sunday.
Upshall, 34, appeared in 63 games for St. Louis last season, registering 19 points with seven goals.
The native of Fort McMurray, Alta., has played 759 career NHL games over 15 seasons with Nashville, Philadelphia, Arizona, Columbus, Florida and St. Louis.

--The best women's golfers in the world are heading to Regina.  While the LPGA Canadian Womens Open doesn't start until Thursday, events leading up to the tournament start Monday at the Wascana and Royal Regina. 

--Canadian IndyCar driver Robert Wickens has been admitted to hospital with ``orthopedic injuries'' sustained in a violent wreck early in the A-B-C Supply 500. The 29-year-old was awake and alert as he was airlifted from the track and he was still being evaluated. The native of Guelph, Ontario was attempting to pass Ryan Hunter-Reay when the two cars slightly touched, sending the former's car spinning through the air into the fence.

--The Washington Redskins will host free-agent running back Adrian Peterson on Monday. The Redskins are looking for some running back help after draft pick Derrius Guice was lost for the season due to injury. Peterson, 33, made seven Pro Bowls in 10 seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, but the team made him a free agent when it declined to exercise an option in his contract last year. Peterson signed a two-year deal with New Orleans, but he was traded to Arizona on Oct. 10. The Cardinals released him after the season.
