TORONTO - When he wasn’t letting his actions do the talking, Brandon Isaac often expressed himself with words that both amused teammates and infuriated the opposition.

On Friday, the Argos held their first official workout since last week’s win in Winnipeg, the first official practice minus Isaac, who was released earlier in the week and quickly scooped up by Hamilton.

“A little bit quieter,’’ said middle linebacker Robert McCune, who roomed with Isaac, of Friday’s session. “But it is pro football and we got to move on.

“I’m sure he’s over there in Hamilton missing us, but he has a job to do.”

McCune is going to wait and allow Isaac to settle into his new surroundings before he touches base with his former teammate and house mate.

Isaac was defensive captain, a status bestowed in a voting process restricted to players.

With Isaac no longer in Double Blue, the Argos won’t have a full-time defensive captain.
