Stampeders GM John Hufnagel has been in contact with Roy Finch

Calgary general manager John Hufnagel has communicated with running back and returner Roy Finch who has been charged with assaulting police officers, resisting arrest and possession of marijuana stemming from an incident in Edmund, Oklahoma.

“We’ve been in contact with Roy and we’re following the situation closely. There is nothing new to report at this time and when something firm does come out we’ll be sure to provide an update,” general manager John Hufnagel said on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old had a stellar season in 2018, leading the CFL in punt return yards (1,200) and yards per return (16.4 among players with a minimum of five tries) and his 103-yard effort for a touchdown in Week 7 against Toronto was the longest punt return so far this season. Those totals earned Finch the Most Outstanding Special Teams Player award.

Finch signed a two-year extension with Calgary in February.
