The Canadian Football League (CFL) has acted in response to conduct in the recent game between the Edmonton Elks and Saskatchewan Roughriders. A trio of players from both sides have been fined for various infractions that occurred during the closely-fought contest.
Deontai Williams, defensive back for the Saskatchewan Roughriders, has been penalized with a fine for a high hit he delivered on Taylor Cornelius, the Edmonton Elks’ quarterback. This hit was assessed and deemed to be contrary to CFL standards of safe and fair play.
In a parallel incident, Dwayne Thompson II, who serves as a defensive back for the Edmonton Elks, has also been fined. His infraction involved a high hit on Saskatchewan Roughriders wide receiver Tevin Jones. This act was considered in violation of the league’s player safety guidelines.
Adding to the list, Kony Ealy, a defensive lineman from the Edmonton Elks, was fined as well. His indiscretion involved striking Micah Johnson, the defensive lineman from the Saskatchewan Roughriders. This behavior was identified as a breach of the CFL’s rules governing player conduct.
In line with CFL’s customary procedures, the specific monetary values of the fines levied against these players have not been disclosed to the public. This course of action reaffirms the league’s commitment to uphold a safe, respectful, and professional playing environment in all its encounters.
