The CFL’s touchdown leader no longer has a job with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
The club announced today, in a one-line statement, that running back Nic Grigsby has been released.
Grigsby leads the league with nine TDs, including eight on the ground. He is also fourth in league rushing with 744 yards on 162 carries.
But he was left off the Bombers’ roster Monday when the club played in Edmonton, replaced by Paris Cotton. Winnipeg was thumped 41-9, dropping the club to 6-9 on the season.
Grigsby had just 121 yards in his last three games and was averaging just 3.78 yards per carry over that span.
