With Marcellus Bowman back, Bombers release import linebacker Dustin Doe

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have released import linebacker Dustin Doe.

This was his second season with the team although he spent most of 2011 on the practice roster.

Doe was helping to fill the gap left this season when Marcellus Bowman went down at training camp with a hamstring injury.

Bowman practised Monday and says he feels ready to play Friday when the Montreal Alouettes visit.
