The Canadian Football League has announced two additional fines resulting from Week 6 action, two weeks after the events occurred.

Ottawa Redblacks’ defensive back Hakeem Bailey has been fined for a high hit on Hamilton Tiger-Cats running back Don Jackson.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive back Nick Hallett was fined for a high hit on Calgary punt returner Peyton Logan.

As per league policy, the amounts of the player fines were not disclosed.

The league originally levied discipline stemming from Week 6 on July 20, coming down hard on incidents in the Touchdown Atlantic game. Saskatchewan Roughriders’ receiver Duke Williams was suspended for a pre-game helmet throw at Toronto Argonauts’ defensive back Shaquille Richardson, who received a maximum fine for the altercation.

Argos’ defensive end Eli Mencer was also suspended for derogatory language directed at an official.
