Toronto Argonauts linebacker Greenwood ready to play in East Division semifinal

TORONTO — Linebacker Cory Greenwood appears ready to resume his 2015 season.

Toronto head coach Scott Milanovich said Friday he believes Greenwood will come off the six-game injured list in time to play in the Argonauts' East Division semifinal game Sunday afternoon against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Tim Hortons Field.

Greenwood, from Kingston, Ont., missed extended time with his second concussion of the season.

The concussions, both suffered in Hamilton, were the first the 30-year-old had ever experienced since he started playing football.

The six-foot-two, 237-pound Greenwood said he could've played in last weekend's 21-11 win over Winnipeg if the game had serious implications for the Argos, who were already assured of finishing third in the East Division regardless of the outcome.

Greenwood said while he feels fine physically, he's fully aware of the potential health implications playing football can cause.

Greenwood added if he were to suffer a third concussion this season, he'd have to seriously ponder his future in the sport.

But for now, Greenwood said his focus is helping Toronto finish its season with three straight wins — the last coming in the Grey Cup game in Winnipeg — so he can celebrate his first-ever football championship at any level.
