February 28, 2006 - Arena Football League (1987-2008) (AFL I) - Grand Rapids Rampage News Release

The Grand Rapids Rampage has announced that offensive specialist Aaron Bailey and lineman Mike Lawson have been placed on injured reserve and will miss at least two weeks. Both were injured in the third quarter of the team's 47-31 loss in Nashville to the Kats and both were sent to Nashville's Baptist Hospital for precautionary measures.

Lawson injured his groin on the opening kickoff of the third quarter. On the Rampage's first offensive series of the second half, Bailey was knocked into the boards head first and left the game with neck pain.

In addition to Lawson and Bailey's injuries, Teto Simpson (calf) will likely miss this Sunday's game against Colorado. Colin Bryant (hip) and Johnnie Harris (groin) also missed time in the Kats loss, but are expected to play this week.

Anthony Hines will fill Bailey's spot at OS and Kenny Solomon will become the team's starting WR/LB.
