There will be no immediate comeback for veteran defensive lineman Shawn Lemon.


The CFL suspended Lemon indefinitely Wednesday for betting on league games, including one in which he played.


Lemon, a three-time Grey Cup champion, retired April 10 to cap a career in Canada that spanned 13 seasons.


The CFL said in a statement an investigation showed Lemon bet on CFL games in 2021 while with the Calgary Stampeders.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 24, 2024.
