A quick update from the Arena, about an hour from the Shock-Rattlers showdown.
Shock DB William Mulder won’t play tonight. He has been sick for the last two days. Mervin Brookins, who started the season with Oklahoma City and logged a few seasons in the af2, will start in place of Mulder.
The Shock are expected to go with four receivers: Huey Whittaker, Emery Sammons (who will make his second start), Shaun Kauleinamoku and Quorey Payne, who will probably be the first option for returning kicks with Raul Vijil on I-R.
I’ll have a short post-game write-up at about 11 p.m., followed by a complete game story at roughly 11:45.
