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.
