CFL Player Discipline: Actions Taken Against Sione Teuhema, Jayden Dalke, Anthony Lanier II, Nyles Morgan, and Kai Gray

Key Points:

  • Sione Teuhema suspended for one game due to unnecessary head contact and striking D’Antne Demery.
  • Multiple Saskatchewan Roughriders and Edmonton Elks players fined for various offenses.
  • The league maintains confidentiality regarding the amounts of the fines.

Sione Teuhema’s Suspension

BC Lions defensive lineman Sione Teuhema has been suspended for one game by the CFL. The disciplinary action comes after Teuhema made unnecessary head contact with Calgary Stampeders’ offensive lineman D’Antne Demery and then proceeded to strike him. The league has zero tolerance for such activities, leading to the one-game suspension.

Jayden Dalke’s Fine

Saskatchewan Roughriders’ defensive back Jayden Dalke has been penalized with a fine. The reason for the fine was a late, unnecessary hit he delivered on Toronto Argonauts’ offensive lineman Isiah Cage. The league viewed the action as detrimental to the spirit of the game.

Anthony Lanier II’s Fine

Another player from the Saskatchewan Roughriders, defensive lineman Anthony Lanier II, also faced disciplinary action from the CFL. He has been fined for making a late, unnecessary hit on Toronto Argonauts’ quarterback Chad Kelly. Like with Dalke, this move was not in line with the sportsmanship that the league aims to uphold.

Nyles Morgan’s Fine

Edmonton Elks linebacker Nyles Morgan has been fined for delivering a high hit on Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ offensive lineman Chris Kolankowski. This is another incident where the CFL is reinforcing its commitment to player safety by penalizing actions that cross the line.

Kai Gray’s Additional Fine

Upon further review of Week 19’s events, Edmonton Elks’ defensive back Kai Gray received an additional fine. Gray has been fined for spitting at an opposing player, a highly unsportsmanlike act. As is the standard procedure, the exact amounts for these fines have not been disclosed by the league.

As per CFL policy, the exact amounts for all the fines have been kept confidential. The league continues to enforce strict rules to ensure the safety of its players and the integrity of the game.
