Whitehead has played in eight games this season and has 36 catches for 665 yards, with four touchdowns. He also has one missed field goal return for a touchdown. When Whitehead broke two bones in his hand in Week 9 against Winnipeg, he was the league’s leading receiver. He had surgery to repair the damage to his hand.

The Lions (4-6) are on a four-game losing streak and head into Toronto on Friday to face the Argonauts (6-4), who are a perfect 4-0 at BMO Field.
