No punishment issued for hit on Collaros

The CFL has reviewed the hit that knocked Hamilton Tiger-Cats quarterback Zach Collaros out of last Saturday’s game against the Calgary Stampeders and determined it does not warrant supplementary discipline.

Collaros suffered was sources say is a head injury late in the second quarter when he was driven into the ground by Calgary defensive end Charleston Hughes. He was slow getting up and remained in the game but was assessed at halftime and missed the rest of the game.

There was no penalty called on the play. The league confirmed it looked at the hit as part of its weekly review but found there was no grounds for a fine.

The CFL did, however, fine Hamilton linebacker Will Smith for a hit on Calgary quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell.


The Ticats don’t play again until Oct. 14 when they host the Ottawa Redblacks.
