SPOKANE -- The quarterback situation is starting to clear up for the Spokane Shock, but there's still a huge question mark as Friday's game approaches.

Here's what we found out at practice on Tuesday:

Kyle Rowley was placed on Injured Reserve. That means he'll miss at least the next four weeks, but it could be much longer than that. Head coach Rob Keefe said Rowley suffered an "extensive injury" against Dallas. Rowley told us it's a problem with the AC joint in his throwing shoulder. He'll be reassessed by doctors on Friday.

Bill Stull, who made his first career start last week, was looked at by doctors today. We were supposed to receive an update on his condition, but that didn't happen. We do know it's a knee injury, and Keefe said today that Stull will likely be out one-to-three weeks.

That means Spokane is searching for a new quarterback to start this week's game against the Tampa Bay Storm. The Shock worked out three quarterbacks today: Casey Hansen, Steven Sheffield, and former Shadle Park High School star Josh Powell. Hansen is the only one with arena football experience, playing for Spokane in 2009.

We're keeping a very close on the quarterback situation. Stay tuned to KREM 2 News and KREM.com for the latest.

As for Friday's game against Tampa Bay, you can watch that live on Universal Sports (not KSKN like usual). That's channel 22.2 over-the-air, and channel 116 on Comcast.
