TORONTO - There’s less pop in how Ricky Ray throws the football, one of the byproducts of a shoulder injury he suffered last season.

There are also fewer receivers with an established track record and an offence forced to adjust its playcalling and philosophy to accommodate for the many issues when the Argos have their hands on the football.

Amid all this, the Argos have to find a way to move the chains and produce points Tuesday night against the visiting Winnipeg Blue Bombers. It’s Toronto’s first home game in precisely a month — the first, in fact, of two home dates within a span of six days as B.C. comes to town on Sunday.

Ray is the least of the Argos’ concerns, but head coach Scott Milanovich did admit during his availability on Monday that his marquee quarterback is frustrated when there’s no zip in his throws.
