He’s played 14 CFL seasons, won three Grey Cup championships, and sits fifth all-time in CFL history in passing yards with 52,486. He’s only the sixth quarterback in CFL history to record 50,000 passing yards.
Wednesday night on 630 CHED Inside Sports with Reid Wilkins Ray was asked if Saturday’s game against the Eskimos could be his last game.
Ray has battled several injuries this season and previous season ranging from his knee, shoulder, and even a lung injury.
Ray played nine seasons with the Eskimos and is in his fifth season with the Argos. Eskimos head coach Jason Maas is a former teammate and coach of Ray and says whatever his good friend decides to do at season’s end he will go down in history as one of the greatest quarterbacks in CFL history.
The Eskimos have already clinched a playoff spot and will go on the road to play either in Vancouver for the Western Semi-Final or in Hamilton for the Eastern Semi-Final on November 13. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers could decide the Eskimos fate on Friday with a win over the Ottawa REDBLACKS which would clinch the crossover spot for the Eskimos. If the Bombers lose and the Eskimos win on Saturday then it’s a trip to Vancouver.
Regardless it looks like the Eskimos may rest several starters on Saturday which include offenisive lineman Tony Washington and Matt O’Donnell, defensive end Marcus Howard, linebacker Kenny Ladler, and defensive backs Pat Watkins and Marcell Young. All didn’t practice this week.
Game-time Saturday on The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium is 2pm, 630 CHED has the pre-game show at 12:30pm.
