Alouettes DB Tommie Campbell back with starting defence after disobeying coach

Veteran cornerback Tommie Campbell was back practicing with the Alouettes starting defence on Tuesday.

One the team’s top off-season acquisitions who was a healthy scratch against Ottawa after reportedly disobeying his coach. He and Sherman said their problems are settled.

“Not one person is bigger than the team. There were just miscommunication issues and that has been resolved and I’m ready to play against Edmonton and I’m ready to win. I’ve just got to communicate better with the coaches and they communicate better with players and we’re going to be good. We’re a tight group and we’re family,” Campbell said.

“I’m pretty sure that everybody is past it. We all came together and I apologized I wasn’t there in Ottawa.”

Sherman would not go into details of what happened between them but had no regrets about leaving Campbell at home. He said that hashing the issue out “actually brought us closer together.”
