QB Ricky Ray takes reps in practice, Argos ‘optimistic’

The Ricky Ray watch is on.

The Toronto Argonaut quarterback took some reps at the Argos’ first practice since last Thursday’s loss to the Calgary Stampeders. Ray hurt his shoulder in the third quarter of that game and there have varying reports as to the severity of the injury.

But according to TSN’s Matthew Scianitti, Ray was at the Argonauts first practice at Don Bosco high school at took some reps with the first offensive unit.

Head coach Marc Trestman went so far as to say he was optimistic about Ray’s status…

  1. Does Marc really think he can throw off Als not knowing who will start,. or is Ricky really going to start?

    He’s not starting, or are they hoping his arm will fall right off?

  3. I’d rest him this wek and start him at home the following week, if possible.

    Good to hear; Hope to see him at McMahon playing on August 26

        lol yes historic McMahon

        • Let him rest…..he’s not 25 anymore. Man – anyone who has played a sport in their youth has aches and pains now and I’m one of them. Ray has surpassed a lot of players and he’s still going (not sure how) ? Save him for the stretch when you need that field general. No disrespect to Ron Lancaster !

    since the front were in vacation mode, and Ricky was having the crap knocked out of him, and the game was lost Mark took him out before his career was finished. Also at 37 he is no spring chicken and we are only in week 8, he needs a rest

  8. The Rgos need a spark, and Ricky has been his usual reliable self but not much to show for it in terms of TD’s in the red zone. He’s too predictable, and he’s not Tom Brady who can thread a needle in a haystack. Sooo, suggest they rest Ricky, and when he’s ready, have him return as a backup to Fajardo if the team is winning. Fajardo can give them a couple of dimensions that Ricky cannot – mobility, speed and toughness. He can throw, too, as his college record attests. He ran for many TD’s, passed for a bunch, and competed well in a very tough conference. Derek Carr, QB of Oakland Raiders, was a QB in his conference at college, and Fajardo’s numbers and size compare very favourably with Carr’s. Give the kid a chance, put Ricky on the shelf for 3 or 4 games.

  9. Sounds like the 4 to 6 weeks I heard Ricky would be out suddenly turned into 4 to 6 days? Good for him and the Argos if it is short term vs long term.

  10. Said he took SOME reps, that could mean Cody took some also. But we now know RR MRI showed no damage, great news but I hope they give reps to Cody anyway. If Matt Dunigan was still playing and had this type of injury, he would have completely rested it until a day or so before game, me thinks. Some of this has to be to try and not have Als look at film of Cody, are they that stupid in Montreal?

    Was practice closed to the media and fans? I had some respect for Trestman, this is just playing games. If Ricky does play and sadly, hit by a pretty good D in Montreal, Trestman is to blame.
