The feel-good week in Argoland ended on an ominous note when rookie receiving sensation John Chiles injured his hamstring late in Saturday’s practice.

It wasn’t immediately known if Chiles will suit up on Monday, but chances are that he won’t.

The Argos don’t go vertical that often, but in Chiles and Dontrelle Inman the team does boast two guys capable of stretching defences and making plays in the air.

Chiles has endured a rash of misfortune this season, hurting his knee in the pre-season, getting his hand sliced open in a win over Edmonton and now this latest mishap.

The Argos had to make a ratio change with free safety Matt Black sidelined with what is believed to be a knee injury.

It looked like Jason Barnes would be the casualty, but Chiles’ injury puts Barnes back on the 42-man roster, if Chiles is a no-go.

Ricky Ray hasn’t had much game action throwing to Chiles, but he has a history with Barnes dating back to their days in Edmonton.
