TORONTO -- British Columbia Lions rookie linebacker Solomon Elimimian was fined an undisclosed amount by the Canadian Football League on Friday.

The fine stems from an illegal hit Elimimian put on Edmonton quarterback Ricky Ray in the Lions' 31-28 loss to the Eskimos last Saturday.

The 6-foot, 225-pounder out of the University of Hawaii has recorded five sacks, one fumble recovery and 65 tackles this season.
