Brandon Isaac will miss the Argos regular-season finale against Hamilton next weekend after being suspended today by the CFL.
CFL commissioner Mark Cohon announced the one-game punishment on the Toronto linebacker Monday after Isaac delivered an illegal, helmet-to-helmet hit on Saskatchewan Roughriders’ quarterback Darian Durant late in the 4th quarter of Toronto's 31-26 win Saturday in Regina. Durant played the rest of the game and is not expected to miss any action. Isaac was not penalized on the play.
In a news release, the CFL noted Isaac had been previously fined twice this season for illegal hits. One was on Calgary Stampeders’ running back Jon Cornish; the other was on Winnipeg Blue Bombers; quarterback Buck Pierce. That hit left Pierce with a concussion.
