New rules put emphasis on versatile players

The Shock, and every other AFL team, are adjusting to new rules that make it tougher for coaches/GMs to manage and juggle rosters.

Read on.

Shock LB Moore placed on injured reserve

Spokane has placed linebacker Terence Moore on injured reserve, a mandatory four-week stint.

Moore, an Arena Football League rookie from Troy University, hurt his knee during Saturday’s victory over Milwaukee. His injury won’t require surgery.

Moore has three interceptions and a fumble recovery. He’s had an interception return for a touchdown in each of the last two games.



Shock put QB Meyer, DL Sharpe on IR

The Spokane Shock placed quarterback Erik Meyer and defensive lineman Brandon Sharpe on injured reserve, retroactive to last Saturday. Meyer (pictured above) suffered a concussion in Spokane's season-opening loss to Iowa. Sharpe's injury wasn't disclosed.

Players on IR are required to sit out four weeks. Meyer and Sharpe will be eligible to return following Spokane's game against Milwaukee on April 14. Spokane has a bye week before visiting Jacksonville on April 28.

AFL rookie Adam Froman took over as starting quarterback and helped the Shock defeat San Antonio 63-60 on March 17. Spokane has signed quarterback Luke Collis, who started his collegiate career at Nevada before finishing at Division III Occidental College. Collis was released during Shock training camp. 

Spokane made several other moves Monday, releasing WR Doug Beaumont, WR Delric Ellington, OL Riordan Gomez and WR Verran Tucker and activating WR BJ Dennard and DL James Ruffin from the PUP (physically unable to perform) list.

Shock place White on I-R

Spokane receiver Markee White has been placed on injured reserve after spraining his left foot on an acrobatic touchdown catch late in the fourth quarter of last Saturday's loss to Cleveland. As the 6-foot-7 White made the catch and was knocked over the dasherboards, it appeared his foot struck the iron bar that surrounds the netting.

White will miss a minimum of four weeks.

White leads the Shock with 19 receptions and five touchdowns. He had 66 touchdown catches last season. Raul Vijil, who missed Saturday's game with an illness, has practiced this week and is available to play against Iowa on Friday.

Elsewhere, former Shock offensive lineman Vladimir Richard has been signed by Jacksonville and three of the four West Division teams (No. 1 San Jose, No. 2 Arizona and No. 7 Utah) are ranked in the coaches' poll. Spokane has dropped out of the rankings.
