Bombers dealt big blow as Jamaal Westerman out for the year

Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive end Jamaal Westerman is done for the season.

The 32-year-old Canadian is currently tied for second in the CFL with seven sacks and has led the Bombers in quarterback take downs in each of the last two seasons. He was a CFL all-star in 2015.

Westerman suffered what the team is calling an “upper-body injury” in the Banjo Bowl win over Saskatchewan on Sept. 9.

He has 32 sacks in 47 games since joining Winnipeg for the 2015 CFL campaign following six seasons in the NFL.
