SPOKANE -- The Spokane Shock return to action on Friday at home against the Tampa Bay Storm. It's a rematch of last year's ArenaBowl championship game.

The focus isn't on the matchup right now though, instead it's on the quarterback position for Spokane. The question revolves around who is going to start this week.

Bill Stull made his first career start last week against the Dallas Vigilantes, but he injured his knee in the first quarter and didn't return. According to the team, his status for this week is still unknown.

Kyle Rowley, Spokane's regular starting quarterback, guided the Shock to a 71-49 win on Saturday after Stull left with his injury. He completed 18-of-28 passes for 169 yards and five touchdowns before hurting his shoulder. Just like Stull, his status isn't clear.

The team is bringing in three quarterbacks for a tryout on Tuesday: Casey Hansen, Spokane's backup in 2009; Steven Sheffield, who played at Texas Tech; and Josh Powell, a Shadle Park High School graduate. Spokane has four days to then offer one or all a full-time contract.

It's obviously unclear when a starter will be announced. We are told a decision likely won't come down until Thursday.
