The Dallas Renegades are being forced to deal with a major injury just weeks away from kickoff. And it’s to their expected starting quarterback, Landry Jones.
An official announcement from the Renegades confirmed that Jones is dealing with a left knee injury that will keep him sidelined for four to six weeks. The injury occurred during training camp earlier this week on Monday.
Here’s the official announcement:
“HOUSTON — Dallas Renegades QB Landry Jones sustained a left knee injury during Monday’s practice at the team’s training camp. Jones will continue to be evaluated by the Renegades’ medical staff.
“We are sorry to see Landry sidelined for the next 4-6 weeks and are hopeful he will heal quickly and be back on the field at our opener, if not just shortly after,” Renegades head coach and general manager Bob Stoops said. “Landry is the leader of our team and will continue to play that key role.”
Currently, the Renegades only have one other quarterback on their roster, Philip Nelson, who the team drafted in the seventh round of the first phase of the XFL Draft for skills players. Dallas will likely add another quarterback to their roster in the coming days to fill the void left behind by Jones.
