TORONTO -- The Canadian Football League has imposed its maximum fine on Montreal Alouettes linebacker Kyries Hebert following an illegal and extremely dangerous tackle while trying to dislodge the football from his opponent. Hebert was penalized on the play and ejected from the game.

"We are committed to fostering a culture of health and safety in all we do as a league, including the standards we set through player discipline," said Mark Cohon, Commissioner of the Canadian Football League.

A hearing took place earlier today that included Hebert, representation from Canadian Football League Players Association (CFLPA), and representation from the CFL including Cohon. Following the hearing and after reviewing the play on video from every available angle, the Commissioner has decided to impose the highest fine allowed under its collective bargaining agreement with the CFLPA, the equivalent of half of a player's game cheque.

The CFL also announced today the following discipline arising out of Week One of play:

Edmonton Eskimo Thaddeus Coleman has been fined for hitting an opponent (with his arm) in the back of the head.

Calgary Stampeder Corey Mace has been fined for delivering a punch.

Saskatchewan Roughrider Rob Bagg has been fined for delivering a punch.

Hamilton Tiger-Cat Craig Butler has been fined for using his helmet to deliver a blow to an opponent's helmet.

As per league policy, fine amounts are not disclosed.
