'Chance' injured Dorsey done for season

Dominique Dorsey might have played his last down of football in 2008 if the Argonauts don't make the playoffs.

Dorsey suffered a high ankle sprain and knee injury Saturday against the Calgary Stampeders and head coach Don Matthews yesterday put forth the idea that Dorsey is done.

"There would probably be a chance it could be for the season," Matthews said. "I don't know. It's a chance. You would know better in two or three weeks."

The odds are good that return specialist Keith Stokes, who was coaching high school football in Montreal before agreeing to a practice-roster spot with the Argos, will play Friday night at the Rogers Centre versus the B.C. Lions.

Stokes, who this season played arena football for Manchester, returned a punt for a touchdown against the Argos last fall when he was with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

"He is in the best shape I have ever seen him in," Matthews said.

Matthews previously coached Stokes in Montreal.

Stokes shrugged off any sort of comparison to Dorsey.

"I'm going to be Keith Stokes, he is going to be Dominique Dorsey," Stokes said. "I'm just going to go out and try to learn as fast as I can.

"A lot of people can't get this opportunity. There are a lot of people waiting at home for calls."

CETOUTE BACK IN?

Argos receiver Obed Cetoute, who has missed five games with an ankle injury, has been practising and could be activated for the game. If nothing else, Cetoute would provide depth at the position.

"It has been tough to watch because you contribute nothing when you are out," Cetoute said.

BRIEFLY

The Argos also released defensive back David Lofton.
