  • A Canadian player got released by his NFL team this week, but another was signed by an NFL team, so I guess things remained at a constant … kind of? DT Eli Ankou was released by the Bills following their first preseason game, while since then, K/P Lirim Hajrullahu has been signed by the Cowboys, who Ankou also happened to play for last season.


  • Once again there were highs and lows for the Canadians in week 2 of NFL preseason action. We’ll save the best for last and start with the bad news, being that WR N’Keal Harry suffered a shoulder injury and will be out for 4 weeks. Now that we’re past that, some of the highs were CFC100 WR Josh Palmer scoring a TD, CB Tevaughn Campbell getting a pick, DT Christian Covington having 6 tackles, LB Alex Singleton having 7 tackles and a TFL, and TE Rysen John having 3 catches for 58 yards.


  • An under-the-radar move after months of silence in the transfer portal and rumours he may go pro, CFC60 DL Mo Diallo has transferred to the PAC-12, where he’ll play for the Arizona Wildcats. The defensive lineman is down 20lbs, now listed at 6’5”, 285lbs, furthering his versatility to play inside and outside on the defensive line. Last year he was a first-team All-MAC performer, registering 19 tackles, 9.5 TFLs, and 3 sacks in 4 games.


  • CFC60 OT Tyrone Webber added a couple of his biggest offers to date, snagging SEC offers from Auburn and Mississippi State. In addition, CFC100 Elic Ayomanor has announced that his commitment will be coming on Friday, and has narrowed it down to Cal, Stanford, and Tennessee.
