Meyer goes on IR, Orton added to roster

The Spokane Shock made several player moves Wednesday. They placed quarterback Erik Meyer (shoulder) on injured reserve. That means Meyer's season is over because it's a mandatory four-week stint. Spokane has one regular season game and the potential to play three playoff games.

Wide receiver Greg Orton has been activated from the other league exempt list. Orton had joined the Omaha of the UFL, but the league delayed the start of its season until September. Spokane added another UFL player, Michale Spicer, a 6-foot-3, 285-pound defensive end who played in the AFL from 2005-08. Spicer has been designated as a marketting player ($1,000 per game). The Shock also signed James McClinton, who played collegiately at Kansas and was in the IFL earlier this season.

The Shock released WR Brian Paysinger and DL Mel Purcell.

Markee White, who tweeted that he was Spokane bound, wasn't on Wednesday's transactions. That figures to change Thursday.
