As the Ottawa RedBlacks prepare to hold the biggest football wing-ding in these parts for many years, the Toronto Argos aren't in much of a partying mood.

The 1-2 Argos are banged up, announcing yesterday that offensive star Chad Owens will be out for at least three weeks with a foot injury. Two of QB Ricky Ray's other favourite targets -- Andre Durie and Jason Barnes -- are also out.

It's a mighty big hurdle even for Ray, one of the CFL's top slingers, to overcome.
