TORONTO -- Ricky Williams' luck with the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL has yet to improve.


Williams, the Miami Dolphins running back who is playing with the Argos this season while he sits out a one-year suspension from the NFL, injured his left heel Saturday in a freak locker-room accident during a 23-16 win over the Calgary Stampeders.


He was playing in his second game since returning from a broken arm earlier in the season. Williams was suspended for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy and is expected to return to the Dolphins in 2007.


The Toronto Star reported Williams suffered a serious gash on his left heel when a locker room door slammed shut behind him. He was expected to be examined Monday to determine if the accident damaged his Achilles tendon.


"We do know that it's his Achilles, but we have to wait for the [X-ray] pictures," coach Mike Clemons told the newspaper, adding he did not know the severity of the damage.


Williams scored on a 9-yard touchdown run before the accident happened.

TORONTO -- Suspended NFL star Ricky Williams scored a second-half touchdown and ran for 34 yards on six carries in the Toronto Argonauts' 23-16 victory over the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday night in the CFL.


Williams put Toronto ahead 23-9 with a 9-yard TD run early in the fourth quarter. However, Williams, who returned to the Argonauts last week after missing two months because of a broken arm, limped off the field on Toronto's next offensive series.


Williams, who also caught three passes for 21 yards, apparently aggravated the left Achilles' tendon injury he sustained while recovering from his broken forearm.


The former New Orleans and Miami back signed a one-year deal with Toronto after the NFL suspended him for the year for a fourth violation of its substance abuse policy.


Toronto tied Montreal for first-place in the East Division at 8-6, while Calgary dropped to 9-6.
