SURREY, B. Luis Montes Jersey .C. -- Stefan Logan had no idea the B.C. Lions running game had fallen on hard times when he contacted his old employer looking for work. The diminutive running back/kick returner spent the last four seasons in the NFL, but didnt get invited to a training camp this year after being cut by the Detroit Lions. Thats when Logan, who played for B.C. in 2008 and was working out on his own, reached out to Lions general manager Wally Buono. "It was just one of those times where I knew I was older and I didnt want to sit there and be waiting, waiting, waiting," said Logan, who was on the field with his new teammate Tuesday after being added to the practice roster. "I didnt want to sit there and just be waiting -- waiting for a team to call." The team that Logan called is one with a ground attack in shambles. After B.C. running back Andrew Harris rushed for just 10 yards in a 31-17 home loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Oct. 4, Buono told reporters at practice: "Our running game, at this point, is almost non-existent." Despite both coaches and players saying all the right things last week about a rededication to running to the football, Harris followed that up with just 31 yards on nine carries in Fridays 40-26 defeat to the Stampeders in Calgary. The Lions have not had a 100-yard rusher since Harris gained 107 yards in a 38-12 loss to the Toronto Argonauts on July 30 -- a span of 10 games. During that time Harris has rushed for 10 yards twice, to go along with totals of 19, 27 and 38. Logan said he was unaware of the poor numbers, adding that he contacted the Lions because they were the only CFL team he had interest in playing for. "I didnt even look at any of the stats. Nothing," said the 32-year-old. "I just knew that when I talked to my agent and talked to my family, I said, If I go back to Canada, I want to go back to the B.C. Lions. "They were familiar with me, I was familiar with them. Still got some of the same guys that were here (from 2008). Once I called them, I was like, Hey I want to come back over there and play." Logan rushed for 889 yards during his previous stint with B.C., while also contributing 477 yards and three touchdowns through the air. He also made an impact on special teams, returning 12 punts for 126 yards, and adding 266 yards on nine kick returns. After his inaugural season in the CFL, Logan headed south to join the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he spent one year before joining Detroit for three more campaigns. "Hes obviously still got it. Its an exciting thing," said Lions quarterback Thomas DeMarco. "Management seems to think its a good decision to bring him in and I can see why." B.C. head coach Mike Benevides said he doesnt know if Logan will suit up for Saturdays game when the Lions (9-6) travel to Saskatchewan to take on the Roughriders (10-5) in a key West Division matchup. One thing Benevides is sure of is Logans desire. "The biggest thing about Stefan is just his passion for the game," said Benevides. "He just loves the game. He loves being here, and he loves this place and thats why he chose to come here. "Right now were going to do everything we can to win, because weve got to win." Logan said he will do whatever is asked of him by a Lions team looking to snap a two-game slide that has them in danger of falling out of the running to host a home playoff game. "If were struggling at running the ball, I want to help," said Logan, who was named to the 2010 NFC Pro Bowl team as an alternate. "If were struggling at catching the ball out of the backfield, I want to be able to help. "Im not coming in to be cocky or anything like that, I just want to come in and help us win and go to the playoffs and win a Grey Cup." Follow Joshua Clipperton on Twitter at (at)josh--clipperton Notes: DeMarco looks set to start his fifth straight game in place of injured No. 1 quarterback Travis Lulay (shoulder). Lulay has resumed throwing, but neither he or Benevides would put a timeline on his return. ... Apart from the addition of Logan, the Lions also announced that defensive tackle Mykes Wade and offensive tackle Nyere Aumaitre have joined the practice roster. Jorge Torres Nilo Jersey . The game got off to a less-than-ideal start for the Jets as Oliver Ekman-Larsson found a wide open net from the slot and opened the scoring for the Coyotes a lead in the first period, but Olli Jokinen answered back just over half a minute later. Jose Corona Jersey . The moves were the first punitive steps taken by the Dolphins since a report on the NFLs investigation of the case was released last week. Investigators found that guard Richie Incognito and two teammates engaged in persistent harassment directed at tackle Jonathan Martin, another offensive lineman and an assistant trainer. . Dougie Hamilton and Jordan Caron scored in the first period after the Red Wings had miscues on the ice and Tuukka Rask finished with a 23-save shutout, giving Boston a 3-0 win over the Red Wings and a 2-1 series lead in their first-round series. DETROIT -- Justin Verlander could sense Miguel Cabrera was on the verge of breaking out of his slump -- even before the Detroit sluggers home run. "You like to see results, but he really did take some great swings yesterday and that was just a precursor to today," Verlander said Tuesday night. "Hopefully that gets him jump-started." Cabrera hit a two-run homer, Verlander pitched seven solid innings and the Tigers held on for an 8-6 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night. Cabrera was 4 for 23 on this homestand before going 3 for 5 in Detroits win. Cabrera hit a homer and a double off Chicagos Charlie Leesman (0-1), who was called up from the minors to start in place of an injured Chris Sale. "No offence to Charlie, but Im sure those guys were pretty excited when they heard Chris was scratched," Chicagos Adam Dunn said. "That would be true no matter which pitcher we were sending out there instead of him." Verlander (3-1) had little to worry about after allowing a first-inning homer to Jose Abreu. He allowed two runs and eight hits, striking out seven and walking two. Chicagos Dayan Viciedo had a career-high four hits, and Dunn hit a two-run homer in the ninth to pull the White Sox within two. Joba Chamberlain got the final out for his first save, retiring Alexei Ramirez on a liner to left with one on. Ian Kinsler doubled twice for the Tigers, who sent 10 men to the plate in a five-run third inning. Cabrera improved his average to .235 on the season and at least momentarily calmed concerns about his early struggles. After Kinslers double in the first, Cabrera lined a double of his own to the wall in right-centre field, tying the game at 1. Kinsler added a two-run double in the third, and Cabrera followed with a drive to right that Viciedo seemed to have measured at first. With the wind blowing out much of the nnight, the ball carried just over the wall to put the Tigers up 5-1. Orbelin Pineda Jersey. It was Cabreras second home run of the year, and it came on the first pitch. "In that situation, youve got to come aggressive and try to get a good pitch to hit," Cabrera said. Nick Castellanos added a sacrifice fly later in the inning, and Detroit scored two more runs in the fifth when Alex Avila hit an RBI double and scored on a double by Rajai Davis to make it 8-1. Avila went 3 for 4 to raise his average to .227. It was 8-3 entering the ninth, and Detroits Phil Coke struck out the first two hitters of the inning, but Marcus Semien doubled, Paul Konerko hit an RBI single and Dunn homered to right. Chamberlain came on and walked Viciedo before J.D. Martinez caught Ramirezs liner in left. Abreu opened the scoring in the first with a drive that cleared the wall in centre for his sixth homer of the season. Verlander did not have a perfect inning all night, but he kept the White Sox from stringing too many hits together, and his Detroit teammates gave him more than enough run support. Sale was supposed to face Verlander in a marquee matchup of AL Central aces, but the left-hander went on the disabled list before the game with a strained flexor muscle in his throwing arm. Leesmans second career start did not go well. The Tigers hit the ball hard off him right from the start, and he allowed five straight hits -- including two doubles and a homer -- before getting an out in the third. Leesman allowed six runs and nine hits in 2 2-3 innings. NOTES: Every starter in the Detroit lineup had at least one hit. The Tigers finished with 15. ... Leesmans previous start came last season, when he also made seven relief appearances for the White Sox and finished with an ERA of 7.04. ... Detroit LHP Drew Smyly (1-1) faces Chicago RHP Andre Rienzo (0-0) on Wednesday night.
