Toronto quarterback Ricky Ray has been named the CFL's offensive player of the week for his role in the Argonauts' comeback win over Hamilton in their home opener.

Ray threw for 368 yards and four touchdowns and completed 24 of his 34 pass attempts in Toronto's 39-34 win over the Tiger-Cats.

Toronto trailed Hamilton at halftime, but Ray led a second half comeback by throwing two touchdowns, including a 10-yard TD to Dontrelle Inman late in the fourth quarter to help guide the Argonauts victory.

Hughes registered a total of four tackles, including three quarterback sacks, in Calgary's 44-32 victory against the B.C. Lions.

Lamar returned his very first kickoff 104 yards for a touchdown against Toronto. He finished the game with six kickoff returns for 224 yards and four punt returns for 18 yards in his CFL debut.
