Thompkins take turn on defense
One of the charms of the AFL for years was Ironman players, guys who lined up on both sides of the ball. Those days are largely gone, but injuries and roster limitations sometimes force players to leave their comfort zone.
Standout receiver Brandon Thompkins switched to defensive back last week with Paul Stephens out due to a leg injury. Thompkins did just fine as a DB, as we detail in this week's Shock notebook.
