As the San Antonio Brahmas prepare to make a run in the 2024 UFL playoffs, a series of roster moves indicate that quarterback Chase Garbers could potentially return to the active roster. According to a UFL press release, the Brahmas have decided to release quarterback Jayden de Laura and offensive tackle George Moore.

In addition to releasing Jayden de Laura and George Moore, the Brahmas have also moved quarterback Chase Garbers and offensive tackle Greg Eiland from the injured reserve list to the inactive roster. With Garbers and Eiland off of injured reserve, all indications point to a return for both previously injured players to return to the active roster. For a Brahmas team that has struggled with many injured players this season, the return of Garbers should give them a significant boost as they head into the postseason.

Let’s not forget Chase Garbers’s impressive start for the San Antonio Brahmas this season. He was a sensation in the UFL during the first two weeks, showcasing his skills and potential. Unfortunately, in Week 3, he suffered a wrist injury during a 24 to 31 loss to the Saint Louis Battlehawks. Before his injury, Garbers had completed 75 out of 106 passes for 588 yards, resulting in 6 touchdowns and one interception.

Since Garbers’ injury, quarterback Quinten Dormady has stepped up and led the Brahmas to four wins, securing their first playoff berth. Dormady’s performance has been commendable, especially in Week 8 against the Arlington Renegades. However, he has faced challenges in maintaining continuity within the Brahmas offense, which could potentially be addressed with the return of Garbers.

The offensive line is another area in which the Brahmas have been hit hard this year by injuries. With many of Brahma’s original starting offensive lines injured during the season, San Antonio has struggled with pass protection, contributing to Dormady struggling to lead the offense, specifically against the DC Defender and the Houston Roughnecks. Having offensive tackle Greg Eiland in the lineup would assist in helping improve the offensive line’s efforts to protect their quarterback, which is especially important this week as the Brahmas prepare to face a potent pass rush from the Birmingham Stallions.
