Dungey released this statement on Twitter thanking Coach Stoops for allowing the time away, and saying he would only be absent from the team for a week.
Very fortunate Coach Stoops understands and supports the meaning of family first and is allowing me to be released for the week due to personal family reasons. Excited to get back to Dallas with the @xflrenegades next week and get after it. #StillRasingHell— Eric Dungey (@EricDungey) February 12, 2020
Many Renegades fans think Dungey should be the replacement for the injured Landry Jones. However, it’s Philip Nelson who is filling the spot at the moment. There’s no doubt that Jones will be the starter when he is healthy, but having Dungey on the roster only further solidifies the quarterback depth on this Renegades squad.
