Oh, baby! Brannagan almost gets call

Danny Brannagan almost got a shot at getting on the active roster.

The Argonauts’ third-string quarterback, Ken Dorsey, left suddenly for his Florida home on Tuesday night when his wife, Jordan, went into labour. She gave birth to a girl, which her husband missed by 20 minutes, on Wednesday morning. Dorsey will re-join the Argos on Friday afternoon in Edmonton, meaning Brannagan will stay on the practice roster.

“She originally was going to be induced on Saturday, as a good football wife would, and he was flying straight from Edmonton,” Argos head coach Jim Barker said, jokingly. “But the baby did not co-operate. They had a beautiful baby girl.”

Defensive tackle Adriano Belli (foot) will not play, and will be in a walking cast for a week, with an eye to returning on Aug. 14 versus Montreal. Eric Taylor will play in Belli’s spot and Chris Van Zeyl will be back on the offensive line after missing three games with a foot injury.
