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

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