The Toronto Argonauts are not confirming a report that Ricky Ray's season is over.

Herb Zurkowsky of the Montreal Gazette reported on Thursday that Ray has incurred a punctured lung that would rule him out for the rest of the year.

In speaking to TSN Senior Reporter Gary Lawless, the team wouldn't confirm or deny the report that the 36-year-old quarterback would miss the remainder of the season.

"We don't know yet," a team source told Lawless.

Lawless tweeted later on Thursday that Chris Gittings, Ray's agent, has not spoken with his client, and at this point has not been informed of an injury.

Ray was hurt in Toronto's 49-36 loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Labour Day.

This would mark the second significant injury for Ray on the season. He missed three games earlier in the summer with a knee injury. The native of Happy Camp, California appeared in only three games for the Argos a season ago after recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.

The Argonauts have three other quarterbacks on their roster in Logan Kilgore, Brady Bolles and the recently signed Dan LeFevour. TSN Radio 690 Montreal's Joey Alfieri reports that the team will start LeFevour in Ray's absence.
