Argos QB Ricky Ray expected to announce retirement

Ricky Ray is expected to announce his retirement from football, according to Dan Ralph of the Canadian Press.

The 39-year-old quarterback suffered a season-ending neck injury early last season.

Ray was injured when he was taken down during the third quarter of the Argos home opener last June. He lay on the turf for over 10 minutes as medical personnel isolated his neck and loaded him onto a cart. He spent two nights at a Toronto hospital undergoing tests and left with a brace on his neck. He did not return to the playing field in 2018.

The veteran passer won a record fourth Grey Cup in 2017, capping a comeback season that saw Ray throw for 5,546 yards – his highest total since 2008 – and 28 touchdowns while missing just one game.

Ray has a Hall of Fame resume with over 60,000 passing yards and 324 touchdowns to his name.
