Spencer Watt was sporting a knee brace at Sunday’s practice, a first for Toronto’s speedy non-import receiver who has made great strides in his brief pro career.

Watt injured his knee in a win over B.C., missing the team’s past three games, watching helplessly from the sidelines as Toronto dropped its most recent game to Calgary.

“That’s what hurts the most,’’ said Watt. “Watching your team lose and knowing that perhaps you could have done something.”

Watt is expected to be back for Tuesday’s game versus visiting Montreal, a team that will play a lot of man coverage in its back end.

When the Argos had an extended break following their loss to the Stamps, Watt had a chance to return to his home in Vancouver, but he decided instead to stay in Toronto and rehab his knee.

“He’s looked good,’’ said head coach Scott Milanovich. “I expect him to be up if he doesn’t have any setbacks.”
