About the Soul: Have won three in a row and can clinch a share of the East Division title with a win and a Cleveland loss … Signed free agent Greg Ryan, who was quarterback Dan Raudabaugh's center last year. Ryan will start at left guard as Devin Clark moves to the right side and Melik Brown becomes a reserve. Brennen Carvalho's job at center is safe … Wide receiver Donovan Morgan was named the National Guard MVP for Week 14 when he had nine catches, for 153 yards and four scores … Defensive lineman Justin Warren has returned to the team after spending 2 weeks dealing with an undisclosed family issue in Texas.

About the Sharks: The defending AFL champ, Jacksonville had a three-game winning streak snapped last week … Tied with Tampa Bay for second place in the crowded South Division where Georgia holds a half-game lead … Defensive back Micheaux Robinson, who started the season with the Soul, has been activated off the exempt list after a stint in the CFL … Starting center Brant Clouser is a Villanova product by way of Altoona, Pa.

Poll position: The Soul is ranked second in the weekly coaches poll, behind only Arizona. Jacksonville is tied with Tampa at ninth.

Up next: The Soul hosts Pittsburgh on Sunday, June 24. Philadelphia closes with three home games in its final four.
