TORONTO - The Als are virtually impossible to beat when RB Avon Cobourne rushes for more than 100 yards. In the first meeting between the Argos and Als, Cobourne rushed for 100 yards and amassed more than 100 receiving yards. He fumbled twice in three games vs. the Argos.

Argos head coach Jim Barker is fully aware of Cobourne's impact.

"What you have to do is make sure (defensive linemen) are sound in their gaps. You can't get so concerned with their receivers because Cobourne will catch the underneath route.

"He's dangerous. What makes him better than anyone in this league is his pass protection. He's an astonishing pass protector."
