Lions quarterback Kevin Glen named CFL's weekly top offensive player

TORONTO - B.C. quarterback Kevin Glenn is the CFL's offensive player of the week for Week 7 after his aerial assault helped the Lions to a win over Hamilton.

Glenn threw for 407 yards and a touchdown and ran for another score as the Lions beat the Tiger-Cats 36-29 Friday.

Glenn is currently second in the league with 1,797 passing yards and has eight passing touchdowns this season.

He reached the 400-yard mark for the seventh time in his career.

In other awards, Saskatchewan defensive end John Chick won the defensive player of the week award while Roughriders teammate Jerome Messam was named top Canadian.

Ticats returner Brandon Banks took special teams honours.

Chick recorded a career-high three sacks in the Roughriders' 23-17 road victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Thursday.

This is Chick's second player of the week award this season. He was also named defensive player of the month for July.

Messam took over running back duties in the second quarter of the game and rushed for 126 yards on 19 carries.

The Toronto native was heavily relied upon late in the fourth to run the clock for the Roughriders.

Banks returned a Ricky Schmitt punt 97 yards for a touchdown in the Ticats' loss to B.C.

John Chick should be buying Winnipegs Pylons for an Offensive Line dinner or at least publically thank them for this award. January and Howard looked simple and slow against him.
