Redblacks re-sign running back William Powell

Ottawa has re-signed running back William Powell for the 2018 season.

After recovering from an injury that wiped out his 2016 season, Powell had a career year for Ottawa last season, rushing for 1,026 yards and five touchdowns in 12 appearances for the Redblacks.

He had a particularly impressive stretch in November when he rushed for at least 100 yards in three-straight games, including a high of 187 on September 29 against Saskatchewan.

Powell has been with the Redblacks since the 2015 season.
