Bishop and Rogers to
Miss Remainder of Season
Feb. 14, 2001
CHICAGO Chicago Enforcers offensive tackle Octavious Bishop
and linebacker Brian Rogers will both miss the remainder of the
season due to season-ending injury suffered in the Enforcers game
at Los Angeles last Saturday night.
Bishop fractured his tibia and fibula of his left leg in the second
half against the Xtreme. He had successful surgery at Edwardss
Hospital in Naperville, Ill. on Feb. 12 but will miss the remainder
of the year. Rogers also suffered a season-ending injury when he
tore the ACL in his right knee.
Savia and Timmons Activated
With the two season-ending injuries, the Enforcers added guard Manuia
Savea to the roster. The 6-2, 300-pound Arizona product was a 22nd
round pick of the Enforcers in the XFL draft but released during
training camp. He will wear number 64.
Also activated was linebacker Carlos Timmons, who has been on the
injured/practice squad the first two weeks of the season.
Enforcers starting left tackle Christopher Perez is doubtful for
Sundays game at Birmingham. During the Xteme game last Saturday,
Perez was injured in the second quarter as he suffered a left knee
and ankle sprain.
