TORONTO - The Toronto Argonauts say veteran quarterback Ricky Ray has feeling in his extremities and no concussion symptoms a day after he was carted off the field with a neck injury.

The team said in a statement Sunday afternoon that Ray was kept in a Toronto hospital overnight after he was carted off the field on a stretcher during the third quarter of the Argos' home-opening loss to Calgary Saturday night.

"Ray is resting comfortably and remains in the hospital for further evaluation. Ray did undergo concussion protocol testing and reported no current symptoms," the Argos said.

The 38-year-old Ray faked a handoff with 4:05 remaining in the quarter when Stampeders defensive linemen Ja'Gared Davis and Cordarro Law sandwiched him.

Play stopped for more than 20 minutes as trainers and doctors attended to Ray.
