Former UConn RB McCombs cut and then re-signed by Argonauts

Former UConn running back Lyle McCombs was one of eight players cut by the CFL's Toronto Argonauts on the first cut-down day and then was re-signed by the Argonauts earlier today.

McCombs was UConn's leading rusher during the 2011, 2012 and 2013 seasons before playing at Rhode Island for his senior season. McCombs finished second on UConn's career carries list and his 2,681 rushing yards ranks fourth in UConn history.

McCombs carried the ball twice for no yards and had one catch for minus six yards in Toronto's 34-27 loss to Winnipeg in Tuesday's preseason opener for both teams.

Former UConn receiver Kashif Moore is among the Toronto players to survive the first round of cuts.
