TORONTO - The Argonauts could be without one of their top defensive players on Friday night.

Defensive tackle Kevin Huntley did not practise on Tuesday as he nurses a sore ankle. Whether the injury is enough to keep Huntley out of the game against the B.C. Lions at the Rogers Centre remains to be seen. If the 6-foot-8, 293-pound Huntley can not play, he likely would be replaced by Alex Buzbee.

“We’ll see how he is (on Wednesday),” Argos head coach Jim Barker said.

FORGET ABOUT IT

Defensive back Evan McCollough, who missed practice on Sunday because his flight out of Washington, D.C., was cancelled thanks to Hurricane Irene and then did not talk to reporters on Monday, had little to say on the matter on Tuesday.

“It’s time to go forward and play this game on Friday,” McCollough said. “We’re just moving on to the next thing.”

Barker was not happy that McCollough did not take the hurricane warnings into account and change his flight. If McCollough was fined by the team, it likely was not for a large amount.

McCollough happens to turn 24 on Friday, when the Argos play host to the B.C. Lions. He knows he won’t be counting on a gift from Lions quarterback Travis Lulay.

“I’m going to have to steal one (a pass) from him,” McCollough said with a smile. “That’s all I am going to say.”
