CFL Player Discipline: Edmonton Elks’ Jake Ceresna Gets Maximum Fine

Jake Ceresna, defensive lineman for the Edmonton Elks, has been handed the maximum fine permissible by the Canadian Football League (CFL) for a contentious low hit on Tyrie Adams, the quarterback for Ottawa REDBLACKS. In keeping with CFL regulations, the exact sum of the penalty remains undisclosed.

The controversy originates from an incident that took place in the fourth quarter of the game, where Ceresna was penalized for roughing the passer. This unfortunate incident has resulted in an ACL injury for Adams, prematurely ending his season.

This fine is the second of its kind to be issued this season by the CFL, with penalties capped at half of a player’s game pay under the terms of the league’s collective bargaining agreement. The prior maximum fine was levied against Chris Edwards of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, who was disciplined for pushing Austin Mack of the Montreal Alouettes during their Week 3 matchup.
