ESKS OF­FER WARN­ING

Edmonton Sun - - SPORTS -

HAMIL­TON — ed­mon­ton eski­mos run­ning back c.j. Gable has a word of warn­ing for Si­moni Lawrence.

the Hamil­ton tiger-cats line­backer rewrote the CFL record book with 17 tack­les last week.

but at the same time, he’s been gain­ing a bad rap this sea­son for some dan­ger­ous hits: One that re­sulted in a twogame sus­pen­sion af­ter quar­ter­back Zach col­laros suf­fered a con­cus­sion on open­ing day that he still hasn’t re­turned from; and an­other two weeks ago that led to a max­i­mum fine for tar­get­ing the back of the hel­met of downed esks quar­ter­back Lo­gan Kil­gore.

and when the two teams meet in a re­match Fri­day at tim Hor­ton’s Field (5 p.m., TSN, 630 ched), Gable, for one, doesn’t want to have to haul Lawrence off of his quar­ter­back again af­ter an­other hit to the hel­met.

“i hope not,” Gable said. “if i have to do it again then there’s go­ing to be a prob­lem.”

Some viewed the fine, even a max­i­mum one, for the hit on Kil­gore to be too le­nient. es­pe­cially with a re­peat pat­tern emerg­ing this sea­son from Lawrence.

“i don’t know. if that’s how he plays, it’s how he plays,” Gable said. “and if the league doesn’t say noth­ing about it, that’s how it’s go­ing to be.”
