Sheppard (leg) re-signed with the Blue Bombers on Wednesday, Winnipeg radio host Darrin Bauming reports.

Sheppard ended last season on injured reserve, playing in just seven games on the year. In those games he recorded 13 receptions for 118 yards. He'll be entering his second CFL season next year and will look to improve upon his numbers and remain on the field the entire season.

Sheppard was spotted with a brace on his injured leg Tuesday and is likely facing an extended absence, Darrin Bauming of TSN 1290 reports.

Details regarding Sheppard's status are vague, but it appears that the leg injury he suffered in Week 13 will cost him multiple games. The Bombers are dealing with a handful of injuries to their receiving corps, so it remains to be seen how their lineup will look moving forward.

Sheppard has been ruled out for the remainder of Saturday's game against the Argonauts after suffering a lower-body injury.

Look for updates on the injury to come during the post-game conference. Julian Feoli-Gudino is expected to see increased reps during Sheppard's absence.

Sheppard amassed 46 yards on five receptions in Sunday's 28-25 victory over the Roughriders.

The 25-year-old has shown up over the last two weeks, serving as an important complementary piece in the Winnipeg passing game. Sheppard encouragingly hauled in five passes despite the return of Weston Dressler (lower body) to the lineup, giving him 10 receptions over the last two weeks. While the results over the last pair of games have been encouraging for the cost-effective DFS option that Sheppard has been, it remains to be seen if his current level of involvement will sustain.
