Argos QB Ricky Ray leaves game with injury on cart, transported to hospital

A

Toronto Argonauts quarterback Ricky Ray went down on the BMO Field turf and took a while to get up.

During the third quarter of the Argos Week 2 game against the Calgary Stampeders, Ray was chased down from behind by Stamps defensive lineman Ja’Gared Davis, tackled and made contact with Cordarro Law as well, immediately reaching for his helmet.┬áPlay was stopped for more than 10 minutes as trainers and doctors attended to Ray, who had his neck isolated before being put on a stretcher.

Ray won a record fourth Grey Cup in 2017 that capped a comeback season when the veteran passer threw for 5,546 yards, his highest total since 2008, while missing just one game last season.

The 38-year-old passed for 233 yards and one interception in Toronto’s Week 1 loss to Saskatchewan. Ray was 12-of-17 for 74 yards after exiting the game against Calgary.

Ray was taken to a Toronto hospital afterwards, but a club official said it was purely for precautionary reasons.

“He’ll get an MRI and those type of things, but I’m encouraged by what the doctors had to say,” Toronto head coach Marc Trestman said. “But I’m not a doctor so we’ll have to wait until the medical information is in, but I’m going to be optimistic at this point.”
