WINNIPEG - Quarterback Buck Pierce remains questionable to play against the Alouettes in the Winnipeg Blue Bombers' next CFL game in Montreal this Sunday.

Pierce was still banged up Monday and will be further evaluated this week, head coach Paul LaPolice said.

"He's banged up and sore but I think he'll be OK," LaPolice said. "But we'll know better in the next couple of days … He was just kind of limping around after the game and he got hit in the stomach or wherever he got hit so, we'll see how he is."

Bomber middle linebacker Joe Lobendahn suffered a knee injury during Winnipeg's 45-23 loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Sunday and will likely be out for some time.

"Joe Lobendahn doesn't look good," LaPolice admitted. "It's a knee, so we'll see, but it doesn't look good."

LaPolice was asked if the injury is season-ending.

"I don't want to speculate but it doesn't look good, put it that way," he said.

Outside linebacker Marcellus Bowman will likely move inside to replace Lobendahn with Merrill Johnson the most likely candidate to replace Bowman at weak-side LB, LaPolice indicated.

Also questionable for Sunday is defensive back Jonathan Hefney, who suffered a contusion to his lower body, LaPolice said.

"He has a contusion to his lower body and we'll see how it is and hopefully, he can go (practise) by Day 3," LaPolice said.

Non-import LB Pierre-Luc Labbe also suffered a dislocated pinkie finger but should be good to go Sunday.
