Anthony Coombs (born October 26, 1992) is a professional Canadian football running back for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League (CFL). In the CFL’s Amateur Scouting Bureau final rankings, he was ranked eighth best of the players eligible in the 2014 CFL Draft.[1] He was then drafted third overall by the Argonauts and signed with the team on May 27, 2014.[2][3] He played Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) football with the Manitoba Bisons.

Professional career

In his first three seasons Coombs was mostly used as a backup, or rotational player behind starting tailbacks Curtis Steele and later Brandon Whitaker. In his fourth season, and first under new Head Coach Marc Trestman, Coombs' role in the offense expanded greatly; averaging 5.2 receptions per game. On August 22, mid-way through the season, it was announced that Coombs would have to undergo shoulder surgery.[4] Trestman said he was hopeful Coombs could return to action before the end of the season.
