Canadian Football League Players of the week

Calgary Stampeders quarterback Henry Burris was named CFL offensive player of the week Wednesday while teammate Sandro DeAngelis took the nod for top special teams player.
Burris completed 25 of 35 passes for 310 yards and two touchdowns last Saturday as the Stamps defeated Montreal 27-24. Burris also ran six times for 53 yards.
DeAngelis hit a pair of clutch field goals late in the game to help send the Alouettes to their first loss of the season. With less than two minutes remaining, he split the uprights from 52 yards out before winning the game with a 53-yarder with no time left.
DeAngelis was perfect on all four field goal attempts and was a unanimous selection. Toronto Argonauts wide receiver Arland Bruce III was considered for the offensive award.
Winnipeg Blue Bombers linebacker Barrin Simpson was named defensive player of the week. He had 11 tackles, one sack and one interception in a 32-5 loss to the B.C. Lions.
Lions defensive end Brent Johnson was named lineman of the week after recording one sack, two interceptions and a fumble recovery.
Teammate Nautyn McKay-Loescher was also considered for the lineman award. Toronto Argonauts defensive back Khalil Carter was an honourable mention for the defensive award.
