Canadian Football League players of the week

Winnipeg Blue Bombers running back Charles Roberts and offensive lineman Mike Abou-Mechrek were among those selected as this week's top players in the CFL.

Roberts was named Offensive Player of the Week after rushing for 195 yards on 20 carries with two touchdowns in his team's 51-46 triumph over the Montreal Alouettes. Abou-Mechrek, meanwhile, garnered the Lineman of the Week award, as he helped lead a Bombers line that allowed Winnipeg to produce three rushing touchdowns. Calgary Stampeders linebacker George White took home defensive honors following his six tackle performance in a 44-18 win over Saskatchewan. White also recovered a fumble in his team's lopsided victory. Tony Tompkins of the Edmonton Eskimos was the Special Teams Player of the Week thanks in part to his 96-yard touchdown return in a 29-21 win over Ottawa. Hopkins returned eight punts for 205 yards, while returning two kickoffs for 54 yards.
