What Did You Miss Wednesday?

revamped Saskatchewan Roughriders

--Riders DL Charleston Hughes is one of the top performers of the month in the CFL. In 3 games, Hughes registered 4 sacks for the Riders.  Others named as top performers were Calgary's Kamar Jorden and Edmonton's Mike Reilly. 

--Calgary Stampeders defensive co-ordinator Devone Claybrooks is out of hospital. He spent a few days in hospital after suffering a diabetic reaction. Whether or not he is on the sidelines for Monday's game against Edmonton is not known. 

--Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has signed an extension with the Green Bay Packers, general manager Brian Gutekunst announced Wednesday. The record-breaking four-year, $134 million extension could be worth up to $180 million in total money with incentives and bonuses.  Rodgers will be 40 years old when the deal expires after the 2023 season.

--If the Toronto Blue Jays are serious about moving Josh Donaldson, a major bump in the road might have derailed things. The third baseman, who was on a rehab assignment with Single-A Dunedin, wasn't in the lineup Wednesday because of soreness in his calves and legs. As a result, Toronto will likely have to pull Donaldson back off waivers because the club can no longer certify he's healthy and able to play at the MLB level, Donaldson has only played 36 games this season. 

--If President Trump invites the Washington Capitals around the corner to pose for photographs with the Stanley Cup, don’t expect full attendance. Multiple members of the Capitals have already decided they won’t go.

“Personally, I don’t think I’m going to go,” forward Brett Connolly said. Wednesday. “There’s a few guys. It has nothing to do with politics. “For me, I just don’t think it’s the right thing to do. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I think there’ll be a few guys not going, too. Like I said, it has nothing to do with politics. It’s about what’s right and wrong. And we’ll leave it at that.”
