The B.C. Lions have placed Canadian linebacker Boseko Lokombo on the six-game injured list.

The 31-year-old had started all four of the club’s games at weak-side linebacker, recording 20 defensive tackles and two special teams tackles. He was named a West Division all-star and the league’s Most Outstanding Canadian in 2021 after making 66 defensive tackles, 11 special teams tackles, four sacks, three interceptions, and one forced fumble.

Lokombo was originally drafted in the third round of the 2013 CFL Draft out of the University of Oregon. He played three seasons with the Lions before stints with the Baltimore Ravens, Oakland Raiders, and San Francisco 49ers in 2017.

The six-foot-two, 225-pound defender returned to the Lions in 2018 and had what was then the best season of his CFL career, making 71 defensive tackles, 16 special teams tackles, four sacks, two interceptions, and one forced fumble. He signed with the Montreal Alouettes as a free agent in February 2019 and split the season between linebacker and safety.

The B.C. Lions were on a bye this past week and are slated to host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Thursday, July 21.
