Chad Kackert (44)'s injury in practice Friday may hurt the Argos' chances.The Toronto Argonauts aren't even playing this week thanks to the first-place finish that gave them a bye into the East Final, but their chances of going to the Grey Cup still may have taken a hit thanks to star running back Chad Kackert getting injured in practice Friday. Kackert, last year's Grey Cup MVP, missed over half of the Argonauts' games this year with various injuries, but was a key contributor for them when he did play; on the year, he has just 480 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 71 carries, but boasts a stellar average of 6.8 yards per carry, behind only Mike Reilly and Jon Cornish in those who ran more than 50 times this year. He also has been an effective weapon out of the backfield, catching 23 passes for 184 yards, and he was expected to be a crucial part of the Toronto offence in the postseason. That all may have changed Friday, though.
