Landry Jones re-injured his knee on a crucial 4th and 1 on Sunday against the Roughnecks. His teammates called for immediate help as Jones was clearly in pain. He was able to walk off the field, but only applied a little pressure to his knee.
Everyone assumed the worst, and even Jones made comments about being out for quite some time. If the fears of an MCL injury were true, he hoped to be able to return for the final two weeks.
However, an MRI on Monday revealed a re-aggravation of the same knee that kept him out for training camp and week one. His recovery is expected to be at least two weeks.

This was most likely the best possible outcome for Jones and the Renegades. If the healing process goes well, Jones could be back for week seven against the Tampa Bay Vipers.
In the meantime, the Renegades will have to choose between Philip Nelson and Eric Dungey to lead the offense. Dungey is hands down the fan favorite of the back-ups, but it’s been all Nelson so far when Jones isn’t available.
