Canadian linebacker Cameron Judge is returning to the Toronto Argonauts’ lineup after missing four games due an ankle injury, according to the team’s depth chart.

The 26-year-old started the first six games of the year for Toronto, recording eleven total tackles. He has familiarity with new defensive coordinator Chris Jones as he was drafted by the Saskatchewan Roughriders during Jones’ tenure as the club’s head coach and general manager.

Judge signed with the Argos in February 2019 after recording a career-high 61 tackles, 11 special teams stops, five sacks, two interceptions, and one forced fumble in 2019. He was named the West Division’s Most Outstanding Canadian for his efforts with the Green and White.

He is listed as a backup at weak-side linebacker behind Dexter McCoil, who has played very well in Judge’s absence.

Toronto is also welcoming right guard Dariusz Bladek back to the starting lineup after missing three games to due an arm injury. He should help buoy an offensive line that struggled last week against the Montreal Alouettes, though standout right tackle Jamal Campbell remains out with a quad injury.

The Argos are set to host the B.C. Lions at BMO Field at 4:00 p.m. ET on Saturday.
