Ticats linebacker Simoni Lawrence has been disciplined by the league for another dangerous hit.

Lawrence delivered a shoulder to the helmet of Logan Kilgore while he was on the ground and clearly down in Week 15. No. 21 was flagged for general roughness on the play, but the hit was subject to supplemental discipline from commissioner Randy Ambrosie.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats linebacker Simoni Lawrence was handed a maximum fine for his hit to the head and neck of Edmonton Eskimos quarterback Logan Kilgore on play #54.

Add it to the list in 2019 for Lawrence. He was suspended by the league for two games due to a head shot on quarterback Zach Collaros. And fined for unnecessary roughness after twisting the ankle of Terry Williams in Week 14.

That’s three infractions in one season for Lawrence.
