Argos cornerback Watkins scratched for East final
The game-time decision on Toronto Argonauts cornerback Patrick Watkins was negative.
But safety Kyries Hebert was in the lineup for the Montreal Alouettes for the CFL East Division final Sunday at Olympic Stadium.
Watkins, bothered by an ankle injury, was scratched from the Argonauts' 42-man game roster along with running back Gerald Riggs and linebackers Bryan Payton and Kyle Jones. Coach Scott Milanovich said this week Watkins would work out Sunday morning to see if he was fit to play.
Rookie Jalil Carter worked out in Watkins place this week.
Hebert turned an ankle in practice this week but healed enough to stay in the lineup.
Montreal's scratches were running back Victor Anderson, guard Kristian Matte, slotback Bo Bowling and defensive back Wopamo Osaisai.
