The newest member of the Argos' offence is in hurry-up mode.

Marc Boerigter, a former CFL all-star who spent three years with the Kansas City Chiefs before returning to the CFL this year with Calgary, will have only two practices if he is to get ready for Toronto's return match with Hamilton on Saturday.

"He has an abbreviated week to get ready," head coach Mike Clemons said. "He did come in yesterday and spent a couple of hours with coach Buratto learning the system. We expect with him being a veteran he'll have the ability to pick things up fast. We will give him every opportunity to play but he will have to prove he is ready to play."

Just how Boerigter will fit into the offence, and whose role he will take over, remains to be seen.

PRINTERS INTEREST

Clemons said it was incumbent upon the Argos to at least look into the opportunity of signing quarterback Casey Printers, but he said the timing is such that it probably won't be more than that.

"Michael Bishop certainly makes our level of interest different," Clemons said.

"If you were talking two weeks ago our interest level would have been a whole lot more acute than now when we have a healthy Michael Bishop. Still, I think we all have to take a look. Could we be one of those teams that emerge (as frontrunners)? I guess we could but, fortunately in this situation, I just coach who they give me."

LINEUP ALTERATIONS

The Argos yesterday parted ways with import offensive lineman Dave Costa. Costa has been with the Argos for the past three years ... The Argos will activate quarterback Eric Crouch from the nine-week disabled list on tomorrow. Clemons was not prepared to say whether the addition of Crouch would result in another deletion from the roster.
