Canadian Football League Players Of The Week

Saskatchewan Roughrider running backs Kenton Keith and Corey Holmes were among those named CFL Players of the Week for their efforts during Week 11.
Kenton garnered offensive honors after his 170-yard, two touchdown performance in his team's 45-26 rout of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Keith, who also caught two passes for 21 yards, reeled off a 75-yard TD run in the victory - the longest run in the CFL this season.
Holmes, meanwhile, was rewarded for the fourth time this year as the league's top special teams player. In Sunday's win, Holmes returned one kickoff for 59 yards and four punts for 129 yards, including an 89-yard return for a touchdown.
Capturing the Defensive Player of the Week was Calgary linebacker John Grace, who had three sacks in his team's 25-23 setback to Edmonton on Monday. Grace also had two individual tackles - one for a loss - as well as a special teams stop.
Hamilton defensive end James Cotton was the league's top lineman this past week, as he recorded three tackles and an interception in the Ti-Cats' 33-30 win over the Toronto Argonauts on Monday.
