TORONTO -- Scott Milanovich began to run down the Argos’ list of walking wounded when he had to catch his breath before attempting to provide any enlightenment or clarity.

It’s been that kind of start to the season for the Argos, a first-place club in the abysmal East, but a team with more injured players than big plays produced.

Every game, it seems, has ushered in a new wave of injured players, the Argos’ most recent kickoff in Montreal representing the latest misfortune.

Emerging rookie Anthony Coombs, the team’s first-round pick, could miss the entire season after tearing his labrum in his left shoulder during Toronto’s win over the host Als.

Milanovich revealed the team is waiting word on a shoulder specialist.

Depending on the findings, Coombs may go under the knife immediately and then be officially shut down for the season.
