TORONTO — A career game for Fred Reid earned him the CFL’s offensive player of the week award Tuesday.

The Blue Bombers running back ran for a career-high 260 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries in Winnipeg’s win over B.C on Friday.

Reid’s 260 rushing yards eclipsed the previous Bombers’ record of 249 yards set by Blaise Bryant 15 years ago and is the third most in CFL history behind George Reed (268) and Ron Stewart (287).

Stevie Baggs won the defensive honours for his performance in Saskatchewan’s loss to Montreal on Friday.

The Roughriders defensive end recorded 10 tackles, including two sacks and a forced fumble. Baggs leads the league with seven sacks this season.

Larry Taylor won the special teams award for his performance against the Riders.

The Alouettes kick returner and wide receiver scored a 68-yard touchdown on a punt return and finished the game with 74 yards on four returns.

Montreal safety Matthieu Proulx is the Canadian player of the week after intercepting the Riders twice and recording three tackles.
