Mitchell Gale, working out at yesterday's Argonauts practice in Mississauga, is vying to be Ricky Ray's QB understudy this season, but so are Zach Collaros, Josh Portis and Trevor Harris.

One of these days, someone will emerge to assume the role of backup Argonauts quarterback, a job description that requires plenty of mental toughness.

In starter Ricky Ray, the Argos have a proven winner, a durable quarterback whose first year in Toronto was briefly interrupted by a fluke knee injury when centre Jeff Keeping rolled on it during a loss to the Alouettes in Montreal.

One of four quarterbacks vying for the No. 2 slot behind Ray will be named in the near future. But as of today, there is no clear-cut favourite and no definitive direction to suggest which way the Argos are leaning.
