After Ticats linebacker Simoni Lawrence delivered a shot to the head of Riders quarterback Zach Collaros, the defender appears to do the same to running back William Powell.
1st offence huh? On the very next drive he was targeting the head again, this should also be a suspension! pic.twitter.com/O4ulIQygew

Powell is falling to the turf and Lawrence makes contact. The Riders runner stayed in the game rushing for 104 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries.
The CFL suspended Lawrence two games for his hit on Collaros. Commissioner Randy Ambrosie stated: This dangerous and reckless hit has no place in our game.
Lawrence’s tackle on Powell could be considered dangerous and reckless, too.
