Givens is not listed on the Blue Bombers' camp roster, Darrin Bauming of reports.

Givens reportedly didn't show up to minicamp in April and doesn't appear to be returning at any point in the near future, which could result in a suspension once the team is able to put one in place. Coach Mike O'Shea is expected to update the situation in the next couple of days, but for now, Givens' status with the team is very much in question.

Givens posted four receptions for 41 yards and totaled 110 yards on five kickoff returns in Saturday's 29-28 loss to the Argonauts.

Givens was impressive while finally getting on the field for the first time despite being on the roster since late September. The 27-year-old brings sports an NFL resume that includes 107 receptions for 1,779 yards and five touchdowns, so he certainly has the pedigree to thrive in the pass-heavy CFL. His ability to return kicks also gives him additional fantasy value, making him a player to monitor over the final two games of the season.

Givens was added to the team's depth chart leading up to Saturday's game against the Argonauts, Ed Tait of reports.

Givens spent time practicing with the starters this week, and will look to make his CFL debut against Toronto during the team's Week 18 matchup. He is listed as a slotback on the depth chart, and is set to receive an opportunity out of that position after working at that spot during Winnipeg's practices.

Givens worked with the starters at Wednesday's practice, Ed Tait of reports.

Givens has not played since signing with the Blue Bombers in late September, but it appears he could make his CFL debut in Week 18. Givens worked as a slotback Wednesday, so he would likely line up in that spot if he does indeed play this week.
