CJ Gable Named Player of the Week

Eskimos running back CJ Gable is a CFL Player of the Week for Week 3 for his performance in last Friday’s 41-22 victory over the BC Lions at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium.

Gable ran for 165 yards and one touchdown on 23 carries while also catching one pass for seven yards. Gable’s 165 yards on the ground is his first 100-yard rushing game of the season, and it also sets a new career high for sixth-year running back.

CFL Players of the Week are chosen by a panel of judges who independently send their selections to the CFL head office. The panel includes former players Matt Dunigan and Duane Forde of TSN and Pierre Vercheval of RDS.

The Edmonton Eskimos travel to Toronto to face the Argonauts at BMO Field this Saturday, July 7. Kickoff is 3:30 p.m. MT.
