Winnipeg linebacker Siddeeq Shabazz, who was just named the CFL Defensive Player of the Month yesterday, will not join the Blue Bombers when they play against the Stampeders in Calgary on Saturday due to an ankle injury.

Although Shabazz did practice today, he is not able to explode on the ball the way he usually does, said head coach Mike Kelly.

Joe Lobendahn will return from a shoulder injury to replace Shabazz at weak-side linebacker.
