MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- Romby Bryant is adjusting to his new life with the Toronto Argonauts on the fly. The veteran receiver is in a new city, with a new team and is trying to pick up a new offence while learning the nuances of a new position. And hes doing it on the run, having not had the benefit of taking any reps prior to Sunday, when the defending Grey Cup champions opened training camp. Trouble is, the clock is ticking. The Argos first exhibition game is June 12 in Winnipeg against the Blue Bombers, and they kick off the regular season June 28 at Rogers Centre against the arch-rival Hamilton Tiger-Cats. "Oh yeah, its hard," Bryant said of all the adjustments following Tuesdays two workouts. "Im just trying to get the playbook down and learn the plays. "Its a matter of getting the reps in. I can sit down and look at the playbook all day but it doesnt mean anything until I get out there and see it all in front of me and look at the defence." But Bryant has more on his mind than just football. Hes also taking courses towards getting his communications degree at Tulsa University -- his alma mater -- while adjusting to being away from his fiancee, Melissa, who lives in Fairfax, Va., as well as his four-year-old daughter, Shiloh, living in Oklahoma City. "It gets harder every year to leave my daughter because the older she gets the more she knows Im actually leaving," Bryant said. "For me, I cant get used to it at all." Fortunately, Bryants daughter wasnt affected by the klller tornado that recently devastated the Oklahoma City region. Bryant, 33, signed with Toronto this off-season shortly after being granted his release by Calgary. Bryant spent three-plus seasons with the Stampeders, registering 211 catches for 3,028 yards and 22 touchdowns before adding two receptions for 31 yards in the clubs 35-22 loss to the Argos in the 100th Grey Cup at Rogers Centre in November. The six-foot-one, 191-pound Bryant was slated for free agency Feb. 15 but asked for his release in January upon sensing Calgary wasnt interested in his return. The move paid off as he signed with Toronto three days prior to the start of CFL free agency. Bryant brings a veteran presence and proven track record to Toronto. Over five CFL seasons, the former Tulsa star has 295 career receptions for 4,428 yards and 31 TDs. "Yeah, but that doesnt mean anything," he said. "I feel like I can run around still but what I think doesnt really matter because Im not making the decisions. "Ive been in those situations where I was the young guy that put out the veteran even though the veteran was better than me but I was younger. Thats the way of the world. Theres no guarantee Ill even make this team." Bryants best CFL campaign was 2010 when he had 78 catches for 1,170 yards and 15 TDs, all career highs. The Oklahoma City native recorded 51 and 55 catches, respectively, the last two seasons with the Stampeders. Despite those numbers, Toronto head coach Scott Milanovich isnt expecting Bryant to become the clubs No. 2 receiver behind Chad Owens, the CFLs outstanding player last season who was the leagues top receiver with 94 catches for 1,328 yards and six TDs. "We have different guys we can spread the ball around to," Milanovich said. "When the coverage dictates youre to get the ball, youve got to (make the catch). "We expect that of all our guys, whether theyre starters or backups. They just have to do the job when their number is called." Owens headlines a Toronto receiving corps that also includes veteran Canadian slotback Andre Durie (70 catches, 842 yards, five TDs), sophomore Dontrelle Inman (50 catches, 803 yards, five TDs), Jason Barnes (31 catches, 437 yards, four TDs) and B.C. native Spencer Watt (34 catches, 424 yards). Running back Chad Kackert added 23 catches for 212 yards. "Its very explosive and theyve got a lot of young, quick, fast guys," Bryant said. "They can score from anywhere with guys like Kackert, (Owens), Durie and also Inman. "Pick your poison." But the man who makes Torontos offence go is quarterback Ricky Ray. The 11-year veteran completed a club-record 68.6 per cent of his passes last year for 4,059 yards and 20 touchdowns in 14 games. Ray was especially sharp in Torontos three playoff games, completing 69-of-97 passes for 869 yards with five TDs and an interception in leading the Argos to their Grey Cup win. Hes happy to have another veteran receiver to throw to. "Romby is one of those guys who has a lot of experience in this league and can play a few different positions for us," Ray said. "Hes not like a rookie who has to learn defence and offence and pretty much the whole game. "Hes just trying to learn what were doing here. As far as running routes and all that stuff he knows how to make the adjustments off what the defence is doing." Bryant says the prospect of hauling in passes from Ray appeals to him. "Ricky is a great quarterback," Bryant said. "Whatever receivers play with Ricky are going to have a great year. "He makes receivers look good."

Match factsThursday, October 20, 2016 Start time 1330 local (0800 GMT)Big pictureIn a normal Indian season, this ODI would have been played on Wednesday and not Thursday, but it has been postponed to accommodate the festival of Karva Chauth. This is festival season in India; the Kolkata Test was advanced to avoid a clash with Durga Puja and Diwali, one of the biggest pan-Indian festivals, takes place during the ODI series.For India, the festivities seem to have extended to the field - they have beaten New Zealand in all four matches of the tour, the Dharamsala ODI being the latest. But it is easier to recover from a loss in ODIs than it is in Tests, even a comprehensive one.One defeat doesnt make New Zealand, the World Cup runners-up, an ordinary team, nor will one win make Indias ODI issues go away but there are enough trends to bother one and please the other. Martin Guptill and Ross Taylor havent joined the festivities, whereas Virat Kohlis unbeaten fifty showed he had no trouble putting aside a nine-month gap between ODIs.Excluding Zimbabwe, New Zealand last beat an international side in March in the World T20. These are the kind of things that begin to stack up; never mind the difficult conditions they have played in or the injuries. India will want to stretch that streak to leave New Zealand needing to win every game to win this series.Form guideIndia WWWWW (last five completed matches, most recent first)New Zealand LWLWWIn the spotlightRoss Taylors miserable tour continued in Dharamsala where he got out first ball, poking at an outswinger. With 89 runs in seven innings, it will take a lot of mental strength from him to turn this tour around.This series is a great opportunity for Ajinkya Rahane to establish himself in the ODI XI beyond all doubt. KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan are injured, but when they are back, wasted starts such as the 33 in the first game can hurt his prospects.ddddddddddddTeam newsSuresh Raina has been ruled out of the second ODI too with viral fever, which should mean another chance for Kedar Jadhav.
