TORONTO - Rookie Anthony Coombs will make his first CFL start Saturday night when the Toronto Argonauts host the Calgary Stampeders.
Coombs, Toronto's 2014 first-round draft pick, will replace veteran slotback Andre Durie, who suffered a broken clavicle in Toronto's 48-15 home win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders last weekend.
Coombs saw his first extended CFL action against Saskatchewan, rushing for 52 yards on six carries and adding a 17-yard reception.
Toronto selected Coombs, 21, third overall in the CFL draft in May.
The five-foot-nine, 190-pound Winnipeg native ran for 2,218 yards and 17 touchdowns at the University of Manitoba while adding 51 receptions for 840 yards and 11 TDs.
