Each time Ricky Ray has returned from an ailment, he never skips a beat.

Every time he’s cleared to play, no matter the setback, the Argos offence shows no signs of any rust.

Admittedly, Ray has some doubts this time around at a time when his return from a shoulder injury seems pretty much all but certain.

A lot more will be gleaned in the coming days as the Double Blue prepare for Monday’s kickoff in Guelph against the Ticats, but barring something acutely wrong with how Ray throws the football in practice he’s expected to line up under centre for the first time since Aug. 23, the night when Charleston Hughes knocked Ray out in the first quarter in a Calgary win on a clean hit from the backside.

During his two-year tenure in Toronto, Ray has been hurt three times, twice to his left knee.

When he first injured his left knee in a loss in Montreal last year, he missed roughly a month.

When he came back, he threw for more than 400 yards.
