TORONTO — Ottawa quarterback Trevor Harris, Redblacks teammate Chris Williams and Calgary running back Jerome Messam are the CFL's top performers of the week.

Harris passed for 395 yards and three touchdown passes in his first start of the season as Ottawa beat Montreal 28-13 on Thursday.

Harris was also named a top performer last week, when he came on for an injured Henry Burris and led the Redblacks to a 45-37 win in Edmonton.

Williams also picked up his second straight performer of the week nomination with 187 receiving yards, including a 52-yard touchdown reception, against the Alouettes.

Messam, a native of Brampton, Ont., carried the ball 16 times for 137 yards, including a 53-yard dash, as the Stampeders downed Winnipeg 36-22.
