Posey has been placed on the six-game injured list due to an undisclosed injury, CFL insider Jeff Krever reports.

The nature of Posey's injury is currently unknown, but it'll keep the Argos' No. 1 receiver sidelined for at least the next six games. Posey has been on a roll to start the season, while S.J. Green and Armanti Edwards figure to see additional targets with Posey out.

Posey totaled 62 yards and a touchdown on seven receptions in Saturday's 26-25 win over the Redblacks.

Posey was on the receiving end of quarterback Ricky Ray's 300th career touchdown pass, pulling the Argos to within 23-19 in the fourth quarter with what his second score of the season. The former Houston Texan has already notched 19 receptions and 280 yards over the first three weeks of the season, effectively establishing him as one of Ray's most trusted weapons in what has proven to be a high-powered offense. Although Posey averaged just 8.9 yards per grab Saturday, he's still sporting an impressive 14.7 YPC in 2017. He'll look to continue generating strong production when the Argos face the Blue Bombers in Week 4.

Posey caught five passes for 71 yards in Friday's 28-15 loss to the Lions.

He wasn't able to repeat his huge Week 1 performance, but Posey now has 12 catches for 218 yards and a TD through two games as one of Ricky Ray's primary targets in what looks like it will be an explosive passing attack in Toronto. Despite his limited experience in the CFL, he seemed poised to emerge as one of the league's top receivers in 2017.

Posey totaled 147 yards and a touchdown on seven receptions in Sunday's 32-15 win over Hamilton.

Posey's 79-yard score on the first play of the second half helped make up for an earlier miscue that had led to points. The former Houston Texan had dropped a 17-yard would-be touchdown that eventually led to a blocked field-goal return for a score by the Ti-Cats, cutting the Argos' lead to 15-12 just before halftime. Posey got his CFL career off to a modest start late in 2016, corralling 13 receptions for 161 yards and adding another 20 yards on a pair of punt returns over four games with Toronto. A full offseason with the team and new head coach Marc Trestman's offense both seem to have paid dividends for Posey in the early going, making him an intriguing fantasy prospect heading into a Week 2 matchup against the Lions.

Posey will start at wide receiver in Sunday's game against the Tiger-Cats.

Posey entered the starting lineup late last year, and he will remain in the same spot as the 2017 season gets underway. Posey was in NFL training camp with the Broncos as recently last year, so he could make more of an impact with the Argonauts this season with a full offseason of practice under his belt.

Posey caught three passes for 62 yards in Friday's loss to the Stampeders.

It was a solid first CFL start for Posey, who had caught four passes in a reserve role the previous two weeks. Expect him to remain in the starting lineup for the Argos' final regular season game, Nov. 5 in Edmonton.

Posey will start at wide receiver in Friday's matchup with the Stampeders.

Posey was behind Llevi Noel on the depth chart the last couple weeks, but the two will switch places this week, and Posey will get the start opposite Kenny Shaw.

Posey is listed as a reserve wide receiver on the depth chart for Monday's matchup with the Stampeders.

Posey has not appeared in a game since signing with the Argonauts in late September, but he is set to make his team debut Monday. While he is listed as a reserve, the Argonauts' receiver position is in flux following the release of four receivers last week, so Posey -- who appeared in 26 NFL games between 2012-2014 -- could have a chance to earn a more prominent role.

Posey did not land another NFL contract after being released by the Broncos in August, so he will join his older brother Julian in Winnipeg. It remains to be seen if or when he will join the Argonauts' active roster with the team healthy at the wideout position.
