The Argonauts could have left tackle Rob Murphy back before the end of the month or he could be done for the rest of the season.

Head coach Jim Barker is loathe to say Murphy’s 2011 season is done. On Tuesday, Murphy had an MRI on his left knee, which he injured last week against B.C.

“He did some damage in there,” Barker said. “I hate to say a guy is going to be out for the year because of what happened with (linebacker) Jason Pottinger. It’s going to be at least a few weeks (for Murphy).”

Pottinger suffered what was thought to be a season-ending knee injury in the opener, but he returned to practice last month. Edawn Coughman will replace Murphy in the lineup.

Linebacker Jordan Younger (shoulder) has not practised this week and would be replaced by Jeremy Unertl on Saturday in Vancouver against the Lions.
