Canadian Football League players of the week

Quarterback Kevin Glenn, linebacker Barrin Simpson and rush end Tom Canada, key figures in the Winnipeg Blue Bombers' 46-10 win last week over Edmonton, all received CFL player of the week honours Wednesday.
Glenn was the offensive player winner after completing 15-of-24 passes for 368 yards and three touchdowns. Simpson was named the top defensive player with eight tackles and added another on special teams while Canada captured the top lineman award with three tackles and a sack.
B.C. Lions slotback Geroy Simon was a finalist for the offensive player honour. Calgary linebacker John Grace and Lions safety Barron Miles were runners-up for the defensive player award.
Bombers Ibrahim Khan and Val St. Germain as well as Angus Reid of the B.C. Lions were considered for the lineman award.
Calgary kicker Sandro DeAngelis prevented the Bombers' sweep, capturing special-teams honours. DeAngelis booted three field goals, including a 45-yard try with no time remaining that earned the Stampeders a 23-22 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
