Alouettes: Wesley Sutton's work recognized


Montreal Alouettes defensive back Wesley Sutton has been named Canadian Football League (CFL) Defensive Player of the Final Week. 

Sutton has terrorized the Blue Bombers offensive unit in a 20-17 overtime win Thursday at Winnipeg. He was involved in a number of ways with tackles, two quarterback sacks on Zach Collaros, a forced fumble and a knockdown.

That fumble notably prompted a turnover in the fourth quarter when the Bombers tried to give themselves a two possession lead. Sutton also forced them to try the lace in overtime when he blocked a pass on second down.

Sutton is in his second season with the Alouettes. The 26-year-old American has made 43 tackles in nine games so far this season. He also made an interception.
