The degree of injury to quarterback Ricky Ray will have all kinds of ramifications for the Toronto Argonauts.

Ray was helped off the field with 8:41 to go in the first quarter of a game the Argos would go on to lose 35-14.

How serious the injury is probably won’t be known for a few days, perhaps more with the Argos not back to work until Thursday.

But the first real effect of the injury could be the shortening of backup Zach Collaros’ planned trip back home to Steubenville, Ohio.

Collaros had planned to head home, like many of his teammates are doing with no scheduled practice until next Thursday with the Argos enjoying 11 days before their next game, but said he would probably cut the planned trip a bit short given the expected move from backup to starter.

Based on the way Ray went down under the full weight of Calgary rush end Charleston Hughes that would appear to be a pretty safe bet.
