Argos place DeVier Posey on six-game injured list

The Canadian Press

TORONTO — The Toronto Argonauts will be without one of their most dangerous offensive weapons for some time as the club placed receiver DeVier Posey on the six-game injured list ahead of the club’s matchup with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Thursday.

The exact details of the injury are not yet known.  The Boatmen also placed WR/KR Chandler Worthy on the six-game IR.

Posey has quickly become one of QB Ricky Ray‘s top targets after seeing limited action as a rookie last year.  The sophomore pass-catcher currently sits second in the league in receiving with 280 yards in three games.

Without Posey, the Argos will look to keep their league-leading passing offence rolling after a 2-1 start as they head into Winnipeg to face the Bombers.  The Argos will also be without veteran WR Jeff Fuller for the second straight week.  Alberta product Jimmy Ralph is slotted to get the start at the wideout position, book-ended by Khalil Paden who made his Argos debut last week.
