Tucked in a press release about the return of one player was an important piece of information. The Shock on Tuesday placed their usual starting quarterback, Kyle Rowley on Injured Reserve.

The move wasn't entirely a surprise. The AFL veteran went down in the fourth quarter of last week's game against Dallas with an apparent shoulder injury. His backup who actually started the game, Bill Stull, left in the first quarter with an injury to his knee.

It is the first time Rowley has ever been placed in IR durng his time with the Shock. The team said Tuesday he'll be out at least four weeks. After that, it will be a week-to-week decision.

In a bit of good news for the team, offensive lineman Shannon Tevaga is set to return to the field this weekend. The team took the former standout at UCLA off of IR, making him eligible to play Friday against Tampa Bay.

 


 

Previous Coverage:

As both quarterbacks Kyle Rowley and Bill Stull were being evaluated on Monday the Shock front office started making plans to bring in yet another signal caller in time for Friday's game against Tampa Bay.

Stull, who started in place of Rowley last Saturday, left in the first quarter with what appeared to be an injury to his left knee. Rowley played most of the game but had to leave in the fourth quarter because of a shoulder injury.

The team said Monday it wouldn't know until later in the week whether they would be healthy enough to play on Fridayy.

In the meantime, the Shock front office confirmed they're exploring all their options. Casey Hansen, who backed up Nick Davila in 2009, was scheduled to come to Spokane for an interview with the team. Shadle High standout Josh Powell and former Texas Tech quarterback Steven Sheffield were also scheduled for workouts.
