Former Spokane receiver Markee White is rejoining the team and could be on the field Friday night when the Shock play Arizona in the first round of the playoffs.

White's name showed up on the league's transaction list Tuesday, showing he had been activated from the Other League Exempt list. A team spokesman confirmed he was activated but couldn't say for sure whether he would be in the lineup.

"He will be eligible but the line-up will not be determined until game day," said spokesman Kevin Maloney.

White left the Shock earlier this season when he announced he was going to play for the Hartford Colonials. But financial troubles forced the UFL to delay the start of the season until September, making White available for the Shock's playoff run.

In just four games this season White had 29 catches for 303 yards and nine touchdowns. Last year he helped the Shock win an AFL title, grabbing 24 postseason catches - including nine in the Arena Bowl - for 234 yards and eight touchdowns.

In other moves, the Shock placed WR/DB Marquis Charles on the Have Been Assigned list; they put FB/LB Ayanga Okpokowuruk and Laupepa Latuli on the Other League Exempt List. Okpokowuruk was expected to join the New York Giants, while Letuli was headed to the Dallas Cowboys
