Running Back Toronto Argonauts
August 21, 2017 Anthony Coombs News
RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Coombs will undergo shoulder surgery, but remains hopeful to return prior to the end of the season.
Coombs was pulled early from Saturday's victory over the Alouttes and test results following the game have now determined he'll need surgery. That should result in a multi-week absence for the 24-year-old running back, though the Argonauts have yet to provide a concrete timetable for a return. Coombs is currently targeting a return prior to the end of the 2017 season, but that will largely depend on how quick the recovery process goes. James Wilder could see added carries behind starter Brandon Whitaker with Coombs sidelined in the meantime.
