TORONTO — After being benched in last week’s game against Ottawa, Chris Rainey looks to be practicing with the Lions and receiving more reps. The veteran running back mentioned that if the team was trying to make him mad, they succeeded and that the 2016 version of him will be back.
Meanwhile, in the Hammer, Brandon Banks has been favouring a injured groin that he suffered in last weekend’s game against the Argos. Despite the injury, June Jones fully expects Banks to be ready to go for the Ticats’ tilt against Calgary this weekend.
Also, while the Lions were creating buzz with the addition of receiver DeVier Posey after a stint south the border, the Argos made a signing of their own in linebacker Jeff Knox Jr., who too had spent the summer in NFL training camp.
