Once Ricky Ray gets the green light to play, the stop sign will be placed on Zach Collaros, Toronto’s backup quarterback who will return to his role once Ray returns to health.
Sunday isn’t going to dictate the quarterback direction the Argos will take for Thursday’s road game against the Als, but Sunday is the day Ray is looking to practise.
Depending on how he practises, how Ray holds up the following day, how little, if any, effect is visible given his left knee injury, the Argos quarterback picture will become much clearer.
Make no mistake, though, the Argos plan to ride Ray, no matter how impressive Collaros looked in his starting debut last Tuesday against the visiting B.C. Lions.
It speaks to the stupidity of fans and media alike who actually believe the Argos are better off with Collaros, now and down the road.
Ray, for those whose judgment has gone blurry, remains the CFL’s best quarterback and by extension its best player.
