Korey Banks will be sitting out for Winnipeg Blue Bombers, as the club placed the defensive back on the suspended list on Monday.

The Bombers gauged trade interest in the 34-year-old prior to Thursday's season opener but have not found a deal.

Banks was acquired from the British Columbia Lions for Canadian receiver Kito Poblah during the off-season. He did not play in Winnipeg's season-opening victory over the Toronto Argonauts on Thursday.

Banks is entering his 11th season in the CFL and tallied 46 tackles, one sack, two interceptions and recovered two fumbles with the Lions in 2013.

The Mississippi State product has 442 tackles, 22 sacks, 37 interceptions, 14 fumbles recoveries and seven defensive touchdowns over his career with the Lions and Ottawa Renegades.

Banks is a four-time CFL All-Star and won the Grey Cup with the Lions in 2006 and 2011.
