The Toronto Argonauts don't expect to have veteran receiver/kick-returner Chad Owens when they face the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Monday.

Owens suffered a leg injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 41-27 road loss in Edmonton.

Argos head coach Scott Milanovich said while Owens's injury doesn't appear to be serious, it will likely force him to miss Monday's contest.

Owens returned to Toronto's lineup Sunday after missing four games with a foot injury.

The Argos (3-6) are scheduled to face the Ticats (1-6) in the first game at Tim Hortons Field on Monday.

Toronto was busy Tuesday, releasing veteran cornerback Dwight Anderson, running back Jeremiah Johnson and receiver Terrell Sinkfield.

Toronto acquired Anderson, 33, from the Saskatchewan Roughriders on July 7. The eight-year veteran had 27 tackles, three sacks and two tackles for a loss in seven games with the Argos.

Anderson helped Saskatchewan win the Grey Cup last season.

Sinkfield signed as a free agent with Toronto in March. He appeared in five games, recording seven catches for 90 yards and a TD. He also had one rushing attempt for six yards, r11 kickoff returns for 240 yards and a punt return for nine yards.

Johnson signed with Toronto as a free agent in January. He played in five games, rushing for 110 yards on 21 carries. He also added 15 catches for 112 yards with one touchdown.
