For the first time this season, rookie Argos head coach Bart Andrus has expressed concern over first-string quarterback Kerry Joseph.

Up until now, Andrus has been a strong supporter of Joseph, who has taken more hits playing behind a suspect offensive line than touchdowns thrown.

When he emerged to speak with reporters following Monday's practice, Andrus left the door open for a quarterback change for Friday's home game against the B.C. Lions.

"I haven't exactly decided what we're going to do there," Andrus said.

Joseph had to endure a quarterback controversy last season, his first in Toronto, when he battled for reps with Michael Bishop, who was subsequently traded to Saskatchewan, Joseph's former employer.

Cody Pickett saw some action in Friday's embarrassing 25-0 loss in Montreal.

Whether Andrus starts Joseph or Pickett won't be known until later in the week.

The 2-4 Argos have been absolutely inept on offence this season.

Joseph, given his position, is the most scrutinized player, but Andrus says each player on offence must be held accountable.

Joseph has thrown for seven touchdowns and been picked off 10 times. His 68.1 quarterback rating is a career-low.
