Fajardo has been placed on the six-game injured list with an undisclosed injury.

Fajardo has seen spot action off the bench in all but two games this season, and even tallied three total touchdowns over the last two weeks, but the Argonauts will be without his services for several weeks. Expect the returning Ricky Ray to see all, or nearly all, of the snaps under center moving forward.

Fajardo completed three of four passes for 55 yards and a touchdown in relief of Logan Kilgore during Friday's loss to the Blue Bombers.

He also ran the ball four times for 27 yards. Kilgore threw an incredible five interceptions on the night, so while coach Scott Milanovich confirmed that Kilgore will remain the starter next week against Edmonton, another poor performance could open the door for Fajardo to take the starting job while Ricky Ray (knee) is out. The rookie out of Nevada has looked good in very limited snaps so far this season, but how he might handle the starting role remains to be seen.

Fajardo completed a four-yard pass, converting a key 3rd down play, to extend a subsequent scoring drive that contributed to the club's 23-20 win in Ottawa on Sunday.

Fajardo's composure and execution highlighted the faith of his coaching staff and was a refreshing change from the norm, bucking the trend of using a reserve QB solely to dive into the line on short-yardage plays. The fact that he was able to execute a play action fake and successfully convert the gamble will be something to watch out for, should the same situation come up in future games. It also indicates a level of skill and readiness in case interim starter Logan Kilgore falters at some point.

Fajardo completed seven of 12 passes for 87 yards in Friday's preseason loss to the Alouettes while also rushing twice for 12 yards.

He showed some good mobility at times, but Fajardo is competing for a backup spot behind Ricky Ray on the Argos roster at best to begin the season. Ray's lengthy injury history could open the door for Fajardo to see some regular season action if he makes the roster, however.
