TORONTO - The losses continue to pile up for the hard-luck Argos, who lost for the ninth time in 11 games Saturday.

Taylor Robertson, Toronto’s veteran starting right guard, ahad his ankle rolled in the first quarter of the Argos’ 30-20 loss to Saskatchewan.

He never did make it back to the game and in a few days Robertson will know the severity of his injury.

The Argos were playing their second game in a row without veteran left tackle Rob Murphy, who is scheduled to have knee surgery in a fortnight.

Replacing Murphy has been Edawn Coughman, while Joe Eppele replaced Robertson against the Roughriders.

The Argos also lost the services of starting left guard Cedric Gagne-Marcoux with an undisclosed injury in the first half, but he did come back in the second half.

In his stead, the Argos turned to Jeff Keeping.

Without the benefit of breaking down the game film, it’s hard to tell what assignment was missed or what call wasn’t made on a critical play that would lead to a sack, forced fumble and recovery by Saskatchewan when the Argos had great field position trailing by a field goal.
