Argos cornerback Peters not practising due to head ailment

TORONTO — The Toronto Argonauts could be without one of their top defenders Saturday when they visit the Calgary Stampeders.

American cornerback Jamal Peters didn't practise Wednesday for the second straight day due to a head ailment. The six-foot-two, 220-pound Peters has a league-high six interceptions this season along with 48 tackles and a sack in 12 games.

American defensive lineman Damontre Moore (quad) also hasn't practised this week. The 10-year NFL veteran saw his first game action with Toronto in last week's 45-15 road win over Ottawa.

And for the second straight day, veteran American receiver Eric Rogers (quad) was limited.

On a positive note, Canadian offensive lineman Shane Richards (quad) was a full participant Wednesday after not practising Tuesday. And defensive back Shaq Richardson (groin) and running back Javon Leake (hamstring), both Americans, have been full participants this week.
