Reed & Sinkfield collect CFL honours
A pair of Hamilton Tiger-Cats have been named CFL Players of the Week for their efforts in the team’s dominant 28-3 win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders last Sunday.
Linebacker Taylor Reed is the Defensive Player of the Week in recognition of his performance that saw him register six defensive tackles, one tackle for a loss, one special teams tackle and one quarterback sack. Reed and the Ticats defence surrendered just three points and 170 net yards of offence to Saskatchewan.
In seven starts in his first CFL season, Reed has recorded 32 defensive tackles, an interception and a team-leading five quarterback sacks.
Terrell Sinkfield is the CFL’s Special Teams Player of the Week after returning 12 punts for 151 yards, including a 57-yard touchdown, in his Ticats debut. He also contributed on offence bycarrying the ball twice for 31 yards.
Sinkfield is the third Ticat to collect Special Teams Player of the Week honours, joining Brandon Banks and Quincy McDuffie.
