Argos' Kackert likely out against Lions
By TERRY KOSHAN, QMI Agency
TORONTO - Chad Kackert likely won’t be able to build on his best game in the Canadian Football League.
At least, not right away.
The Argonauts running back again on Thursday was a spectator for the most part at practice, watching as Gerald Riggs Jr. took the first-team reps.
Kackert is nursing a lower left leg injury and is questionable, at best, for the Argos’ game in Vancouver on Saturday.
“He did not look great today,” Argos head coach Scott Milanovich said about Kackert after practice. “We are going to evaluate it. My gut would tell me Riggs would be going, but we don’t know that at this point yet.”
Kackert rushed for 172 yards and three touchdowns on 16 carries in a 45-31 win against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats last Saturday. Kackert also had 67 yards receiving and was named the CFL offensive player of the week.
Riggs has not appeared in a game for the Argos this season.
