Another huge performance against the B.C. Lions has earned DeAndra’ Cobb another CFL offensive player of the week award.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats rookie running back captured the honour for the second time this year after rushing for 167 yards and two TDs in a 30-18 win over B.C. Cobb captured the award for the first time three weeks ago after running for 100 yards and catching five passes for 75 yards and a touchdown in a 31-28 victory over the Lions.

Edmonton Eskimos quarterback Ricky Ray was a finalist for the award.

Hamilton linebacker Jamall Johnson claimed defensive player honours after registering 10 tackles against B.C. The former Lion also had a sack and forced fumble in the contest.

Winnipeg defensive end Gavin Walls and Edmonton defensive tackle Dario Romero were also considered.

Edmonton’s Arkee Whitlock was named special-teams player for his performance in a 33-19 win over previously unbeaten Montreal. Whitlock had 131 yards on three kick returns and gave the Eskimos solid field position throughout the game.

Saskatchewan slotback Chris Getzlaf was a unanimous pick for top Canadian. Replacing the injured Andy Fantuz, Getzlaf had five catches for 101 yards and two touchdowns, the second coming on a 65-yard reception that earned the Riders’ a 24-23 win over Calgary.
