According to a report by former Alouette and RDS colour commentator Matthieu Proulx, Montreal’s star running back will be out of the lineup Saturday against the Blue Bombers.

Translation, for our non-francophone audience, is that Stanback will not dress tomorrow and will be replaced by Jeremiah Johnson. Stanback will be placed on the one-game injured list with a minor injury.

This isn’t the first time that Stanback has missed a game for maintenance this season and, while the loss of the league’s third leading rusher will be a blow, the Alouettes figure to be in capable hands with the productive Johnson in his place.
