Defensive tackle Garrett Marino received suspensions after the game, which featured a dust up late. Marino was hit with a four game ban for his actions in the game.

Two of the games in the suspension were for the hit on Ottawa QB Jeremiah Masoli and Marino’s subsequent celebration. One game was for a CFL code of conduct violation while the other for Marino’s illegal and reckless tackle of an Ottawa offensive lineman on a previous play.
