San Diego Fleet starting quarterback Philip Nelson is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the San Antonio Commanders because of a back injury, the Alliance of American Football team announced.

However, Nelson was able to fully participate in all three practices this week, including the one on Friday, a team official said.

A player is listed as questionable when it is uncertain whether he will play.

Starting middle linebacker A.J. Tarpley was also listed as questionable because of a hip injury. He practiced on a limited basis this week, meaning he participated in less than 100 percent of his normal reps.

Reserve free safety Demetrius Wright is questionable because of thigh injury. He fully participated in Thursday and Friday’s practice after participating on a limited basis Wednesday.

Starting cornerback Jude Adjei-Barimah will miss his second consecutive game after fracturing a wrist in the Feb. 9 opener.

The Fleet placed guard John Montelus on the reserved/injured list Friday because of a shoulder injury. He was not active for either of the Fleet’s first two games.

The Fleet also announced Friday they had re-signed receiver Kyle Lewis and waived receiver Shay Fields who had been on the reserved/injured list because of a calf injury.

Lewis had been among the players waived Jan. 30 as the Fleet reduced its roster to the 52-player regular-season limit. The 23-year-old Lewis was a standout at San Marcos High School and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo who played in three preseason games with the Green Bay Packers last summer.
