Ticats linebacker Simoni Lawrence has been disciplined for his maneuver on Stampeders running back and returner Terry Williams.

Lawrence tries to roll over from the bodies on the ground with Williams’ ankle in tow. 3Downnation’s Ryan Ballantine felt it was worthy of a suspension.

From the CFL office:

Hamilton Tiger-Cats linebacker Simoni Lawrence was fined for unnecessary roughness at the end of a play on Calgary Stampeders running back Ka’Deem Carey.  

The league may have the wrong name but the punishment still stands.

It’s another offence committed by Lawrence after being suspended by the league for two games due to a head shot on quarterback Zach Collaros.
