What gets BC excited about the Canadian Football League? Not much. It is funny, however, to look at CFL rosters, where they list guys as “Imports” or “Non-Imports.” Anyway, let’s get to this huge hit in the Week 9 game featuring Montreal vs. Hamilton. QB Henry Burris, still a legend up north, launches a pass that is picked off.
That’s bad news for his teammate, Onrea Jones, who is about to get lit up by Kyries Hebert.
15-yard penalty? Not in the CFL.
Of course Hebert had this to say the night before the Hamilton game. He gave Jones fair warning. Must not be a follower.

For those of you that didn't watch Friday night's CFL affair between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Montreal Alouettes, you might have missed the block of the year in professional football.
After Hamilton's Henry Burris threw an interception to Montreal defensive back Jerald Brown, Tiger Cats wide receiver Onrea Jones attempted to make the tackle.
Any hopes of DE Jonathan Fanene being able to contribute this season looked to have been dashed when he injured his knee early in training camp, and hadn't been able to recover from it. It's a tough break for the player and the team because he's a tough SOB that would've fit quite well in the Patriots rotation.

The Bengals have placed left guard Travelle Wharton and four others on the injured reserve list, ending their seasons.
Wharton severely damaged his right knee on Cincinnati's first series of the preseason opener against the Jets, forcing him to leave the field on a cart.
In addition, the Bengals put cornerback Brandon Ghee (wrist), cornerback Shaun Prater (knee), receiver/cornerback...
Former Bengals running back Cedric Benson returned to his old stomping grounds with his new team, the Green Bay Packers, and had a great time seeing all of his old teammates again, and they did too. And we bet they miss him already. He also got to see for the first time, the visitor's locker room.
“It felt good,” Benson told the Cincinnati Inquirer.
Sure it doesn’t have the glitz, glamor or popularity of the NFL, but the CFL does feature some pretty good players capable of pulling off some pretty terrific plays, as evidenced by this mammoth, decleater of a block delivered by Alouettes safety Kyries Hebert on Tiger-Cats receiver Onrea Jones following a Henry Burris pick.
Jones’ focus is squarely on the Als’ Jerald Brown...
Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis sat out Thursday night's game with toe injury.Fantasy Spin:The Bengals are also without running back Bernard Scott, who will miss all of the preseason with a hand injury. We expect Green-Ellis to be ready for Week 1 and to handle the majority of the team's carries, but it is a bit concerning that he has now missed back-to-back games.
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was just 5-for-17 for 40 yards against Green Bay in what was likely his final tuneup before the season begins.Fantasy Spin:Dalton hasn't done much in preseason and to date none of the other Bengals' receivers have stepped up to help out A.J. Green. Dalton had a fine rookie season (3,398 yards, 20 TDs, 13 INTs) and we expect improvement in Year...
Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Manny Lawson suffered a groin injury during Thursday night’s preseason loss to the Packers. He ended up not returning to the game.
Manny Lawson has a groin injury and his return is doubtful.

The Bengals have been hit pretty hard with injuries this preseason. Hopefully they’ll get some guys...
The Bengals offense hasn’t lived up to expectations thus far in the preseason, and that’s never a good sign, as teams who struggle on offense in the preseason tend to struggle as much, if not more during the regular season. Of course Pro Bowl TE Jermaine Gresham is out, but the team did fine while he was injured during the regular season last year.
The team has also been missing...

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been trying to keep up with the case of the Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader…You know the one that was suing thedirty.com and then she got caught having sex with a minor…Yea, that one — Jones is being charged with using her position of authority to coerce a student into engaging in a sexual relationship...
