As the San Antonio Brahmas finalize their game plan for their Week 4 matchup against the Michigan Panthers, they have made several adjustments to their active roster. The UFL has communicated those adjustments with a recent press release.

Many adjustments involve filling in for players removed from the active roster to the injured reserve list, including quarterback Chase Garbers. Many Brahmas players have been activated and are recent additions to the roster. Others are players who either have been injured and are returning or have been waiting for their opportunity.

Offensively, quarterback Tom Flacco has been officially activated for the first time this season to serve as the backup quarterback behind Quinten Dormady. Running back Morgan Ellison is a recent addition to the Brahmas roster, and he will be the Brahmas third active running back against the Panthers after Anthony McFarland moved to the inactive list due to a shoulder injury. Another recently signed player, center Alex Pihlstrom, is being activated to serve as the backup behind Sam Tecklenburg. The Brahmas have also activated wide receiver Landen Akers to fill in for wide receiver Calvin Turner on the active roster.

Defensively, the Brahmas have activated cornerback Bryce Thompson to replace cornerback Teez Tabor, who has moved to the inactive list. Outside linebacker Garrett Nelson has been activated to provide depth as an edge defender due to Delontae Scott, who is still coping with an injury. San Antonio has also moved defensive tackle Jacob Sykes to the inactive list for this week.

The adjustments that the Brahmas have made to their roster this week are necessary due to the large number of injuries to many of their key players. In response to those injuries, the Brahmas have been signing additional players to maintain the integrity of their roster and depth charts. This week will be a big test for the Brahmas as they face a formidable opponent in the Michigan Panthers while also managing their large number of injured players.
