TORONTO - The CFL suspended defensive lineman Tearrius George of the Saskatchewan Roughriders for the opening game of the 2013 season for an illegal hit in last weekend's West Division final.

George was suspended after a hearing Wednesday with CFL commissioner Mark Cohon.

George delivered a helmet-to-helmet hit on Calgary quarterback Drew Tate in the second quarter of the Stampeders' 36-30 win over Saskatchewan on Sunday.

As a result of the Riders' playoff loss, George will sit out Saskatchewan's opening contest of the 2013 campaign.

Drew Tate is out of the playoffs as well...broken forearm.

What are suspension rules in this league. Yes a suspension was warranted but considering what others have gotten away with. Time to get tough comish!

Correct call from the CFL on this hit!

He is a free agent. Weird call. He might not even be with the Riders next year.

I'm really glad to see the CFL consistantly suspending players for this type of hit though.
