Redblacks LB Kyries Hebert believes the league is watching him closely

Redblacks linebacker Kyries Hebert returns to the Ottawa lineup after serving his one-game suspension for a hit on Calgary’s DaVaris Daniels Thursday night against the Stampeders.

Stamps quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell believes Hebert needs to take the dirty hits out of his game.

“It’s Kyrie’s thing. He’s been like that the entire time he’s been in the league,” Mitchell told Postmedia’s Danny Austin. “I don’t dislike the guy, but when it’s your M.O. and you do it again… it’s not how football should be played.”

The veteran linebacker has no plan to change his style of play.

“I’ve had over 800 career tackles and I’ve been in trouble five times maybe, so the ratio is not like it’s an every play incident where I have a play that’s illegal,” said Hebert.

“I want to clean it up, the most important thing is our team and for me to be available to them.”


Hebert knows he has little room for error.

“They’re (the league) going to keep a closer eye because I’m me,” Hebert said.
