TORONTO - Manager Ryan Nelsen and five assistant coaches are gone. And a question mark looms over star striker Jermain Defoe's future.

Dan Lewis figures Canada's volleyball team has logged well over 100,000 kilometres this summer.

It's a journey that has the Canadians in Poland for the world championships — and one they hope will continue all the way to the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Canada opens against No. 2-ranked Russia on Monday in Gdansk, in a world championship that's not only important in itself, but a huge step on the road to Rio.

West to play in Labour Day game for Calgary

Calgary receiver continues to play through grief following brother's murder
Donna Spencer, The Canadian Press

CALGARY - The loss of a loved one can make football seem not very important. But Stampeders receiver Joe West says football is getting him through a tough week before he heads home for his brother's funeral.

West will play in Monday's Labour Day game against the Edmonton Eskimos before he departs for Garland, Texas.

Just hours after learning his half-brother Brandon Hobdy was murdered in Arkansas, West had four catches totalling 129 yards in last week's win over Ottawa.

Football has been a welcome, albeit temporary, distraction from his grief.

Eskimos quarterback a question mark

Edmonton's starting QB a question heading into Labour Day game against Calgary
Donna Spencer, The Canadian Press

CALGARY - The mystery of Edmonton's starting quarterback for the Labour Day game in Calgary will extend into game day.

Mike Reilly's thumb on his throwing hand has not completely healed since he injured it last week against Toronto. Matt Nichols came off the bench and threw for 178 yards and a touchdown, but was intercepted twice, in a 41-27 win.

Twenty-four hours before Monday's kickoff at McMahon Stadium, neither Reilly nor Eskimos coach Chris Jones were forthcoming on who would take first snaps.
