CFL fines Alouettes RB Tyrell Sutton for running over Redblacks DB

The CFL has lowered the boom on Tyrell Sutton just as he did on a Redblacks defender.

Sutton left tire marks on Ottawa defensive back Corey Tindal in Week 4.

Sutton was not penalized on the play, but the league fined him for delivering a blow with the crown of his helmet.

In May the CFL changed the definition of spearing to include any situation where a player delivers a blow with his helmet as the initial or primary point of contact. This does not apply to a low running ball carrier.

That widened interpretation has cost Sutton money.
