CALGARY -- With their momentum suddenly halted, the Calgary Stampeders are collecting themselves for what will be a tough fight for the West Division over the final third of the regular season. Brian Cushing Jersey . At 10-2, Calgary still tops the CFL and West Division standings. But a 31-15 loss Sunday to the Alouettes in Montreal was a dash of cold water in the face of leagues top team. A week earlier, Calgary had to overcome a 19-point deficit at halftime to beat the Toronto Argonauts. The Stampeders have six games remaining against three division opponents, starting Saturday at home against the B.C. Lions (7-5). The Lions downed the host Stamps 25-24 on Aug. 1 for Calgarys only other loss this season. The Stampeders twice face the Saskatchewan Roughriders (9-3) and Winnipeg Blue Bombers (6-6) before the season finale against the Lions. Calgary is two points up on the Roughriders, four on the Edmonton Eskimos and six on the Lions. The Stampeders swept the season series against the Eskimos. This home stretch will determine who gets what in terms of a playoff berth, home playoff games and the bye to the West Division final. "This is the best part of the season," running back Jon Cornish said. "Over the last few years, Ive sort of realized that nothing really matters except for these last six games. "With that in mind, I think this team is really going to prepare for that. Were going to be ready to take on all these opponents because were playing great teams." Cornish, the CFLs most outstanding player in 2013 and leading rusher the last two seasons, will play Saturday after sitting out the game in Montreal. Cornish didnt travel with the team in order to heal undisclosed aches and pains. The 29-year-old from New Westminster, B.C., missed six games in July and August with concussion symptoms. "I dont think Ill have to miss any more games," Cornish said. "Thats why I took this time, so I would be ready. These teams are going to be ready to play us, so I want to be ready for them." Quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell isnt ready to return, which means Drew Tate gets his second straight start of the season. Mitchell sprained his ankle and stretched a ligament in his left leg late in the game versus the Argos. Tate took first-team reps Tuesday, while Mitchell practised lightly wearing a brace on his left leg. "Hes progressing at a good tempo," Stampeder coach John Hufnagel said of Mitchell. "Probably will not make this game, maybe as a No. 3 guy. Hopefully hell be full-go for the next game." Calgary has built a reputation for winning despite injuries. They were 14-4 last season despite using three different starting quarterbacks. But the Stampeders may have neared the limit of their depth Sunday in Montreal. Not only were the starting quarterback and star running back absent, but leading receiver Marquay McDaniel was on the six-game injured list with a broken bone in his hand from the Toronto game. The Stampeders managed two touchdowns on the ground and less than 300 yards on offence, but it was on the other side of the ball where Calgary was uncharacteristically porous. A team allowing an average of 18 points per game gave up 31. Montreals offence had the ball for almost 38 minutes, while Calgarys time of possession was just over 23. Team sack leader Charleston Hughes (foot), defensive tackle Demonte Bolden (leg) and Hughess backup Ben DAguilar (knee) were also injured in the Toronto game. That trio didnt play in Montreal and they wont Saturday against the Lions. Bolden is on the six-game injured list. Its further decimated a defensive line that was already without starters Micah Johnson (knee) and Corey Mace (foot). "Thats no excuse for the way we played," defensive end Shawn Lemon said. "It doesnt matter who is out. If youre on this team we believe we can step up. I take it upon myself as well. I didnt play up to my expectations and I wasnt an impact in the last game. "Just got to gain momentum back. We took a step back last week so just come out and get back to what we were doing the first 11 weeks of the season." The Stampeders added defensive lineman Caesar Rayford to the practice roster Tuesday. He played seven games and recorded five tackles for the NFLs Dallas Cowboys last season. The six-foot-seven University of Washington product also spent time on the Lions practice roster in 2008. Johnathan Joseph Jersey . The team made the announcement after Saturdays 6-5 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. RHP Kenny Giles will be called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to fill Adams spot on the roster. Benardrick McKinney Jersey . Among the six changes: Drivers are now eligible if they have competed for 30 or more years in NASCAR or turned 55 in the calendar year before nominating day. Previously, drivers were not eligible until they had been retired for three years, so drivers can continue to compete and still reach the hall. .

The 149th-ranked Krajinovic converted five of his 10 break point chances against the second-seeded Italian and dropped just eight points in the second set to win in only 54 minutes. Krajinovic next plays Serbias Dusan Lajovic, who defeatedd 15th-seeded Carlos Berlocq of Argentina 6-3, 6-4. Andre Johnson Jersey. Fifth-seeded Mikhail Youzhny of Russia lost 7-5, 7-5 to 17-year-old Alexander Zverev, and another German wild card Tobias Kamke defeated 13th-seeded Argentine Federico Delbonis 6-3, 6-4.
