The Argonauts will take their act to Moncton, N.B., in 2010.

The Canadian Football League will announce today that the Argos will be one of two teams playing in a regular-season game next year at the University of Moncton. The Argos will be the home team, meaning there would be one less game at the Rogers Centre.

The opposing club might not be known until the full 2010 schedule is released in the new year.

Reaves in, sort of

Quarterback Stephen Reaves will be activated from the practice roster today but head coach Bart Andrus does not intend to use him tomorrow against the Edmonton Eskimos.

"We're planning to start Kerry (Joseph) and play throughout the game with him," Andrus said.

But what about getting an idea of whether Reaves can play at the CFL level? He has not appeared in a game since the pre-season, and is going to be in uniform only because Cody Pickett is recovering from a small tear in his oblique muscle.

"(Reaves) would not be here if we did not feel good about him," Andrus said. "I feel comfortable that Stephen will be ready."

Dorsey vows return

Running back Dominique Dorsey was limping as he recovers from a high right ankle sprain, but considered it progress.

Dorsey suffered the injury during a loss in Saskatchewan on Saturday. He had shed a protective boot and crutches that he was using the day before.

"Things are looking good," Dorsey said. "Each day I am gradually getting better."

Dorsey, the CFL's most outstanding special teams player in 2008, said he "definitely" will play again this season.

Washburn swapped

The Argos traded offensive tackle Cliff Washburn to the Saskatchewan Roughriders for a fifth-round draft pick next year and a conditional pick in 2011.
