The Toronto Argonauts were without two key players in practice on Tuesday as receiver DaVaris Daniels (groin) and defensive lineman Folarin Orimolade (ankle) were non-participants.

Daniels made two catches for 27 yards in the club’s season-opening win over the B.C. Lions before last week’s bye. The two-time Grey Cup champion was named an East Division all-star last year after recording his first career 1,000-yard season, catching 52 passes for 1,009 yards.

Orimolade made three tackles and one sack against B.C. from his spot at defensive end. The five-foot-eleven, 238-pound native of Washington, D.C. made 36 tackles, 10 sacks, and two forced fumbles over 17 games last season and was named an East Division all-star for the first time in his career.

Boundary wideout Damonte Coxie, who missed Week 1 with a hamstring injury, was a full participant on Tuesday, as were fullback Albert Awachie (hand) and receiver Tommy Nield (quad).

The Toronto Argonauts (1-0) will host the Edmonton Elks (0-2) on Saturday, June 22 with kickoff slated for 7:00 p.m. EDT.
