It took five seasons, but Joffrey Reynolds finally has a CFL rushing title.

And he didn't need to do anything to clinch it.

With Wes Cates of the Saskatchewan Roughriders getting only 29 yards along the ground last night in a 45-38 victory over the Toronto Argonauts, Reynolds tops his former teammate by running for 1,295 yards in 17 games.

Cates -- the former Stamp -- finished with 1,229 yards along the ground.

Reynolds can pad his stats tomorrow afternoon when the Calgary Stampeders host the B.C. Lions at McMahon Stadium (3 p.m., TSN).

Reynolds had twice before finished second in the rushing race, both times to Winnipeg Blue Bombers star Charles Roberts. Last year, he placed third behind Roberts and B.C. Lions power back Joe Smith with 1,231 yards.

In four-plus seasons with the Stamps, Reynolds has yet to miss a game due to injury and he already sits fifth in franchise yards.

Only Kelvin Anderson, Earl Lunsford, Lovell Coleman and Willie Burden are ahead of Reynolds on the Stamps list.

The Stamps have a chance to double up on titles this season, as Ken-Yon Rambo is one yard ahead of Lions slotback Geroy Simon for receiving yardage and the two go head-to-head tomorrow.

It would be Rambo's first title in that category as well.
