Winnipeg Blue Bombers linebacker Maurice Leggett will miss the remainder of the 2017 CFL season after suffering a torn Achilles tendon.

The team made the announcement on Sunday.

Leggett was injured on Saturday when he recovered a B.C. onside kick late in the fourth quarter of a 26-20 victory over the Lions.

The 31-year-old had 50 defensive tackles, three sacks, three forced fumbles, three interceptions and one defensive touchdown in 13 games this season.

Winnipeg (11-4) clinched a playoff spot in the CFL West Division with the win.
