Houston Roughnecks at Tampa Bay Vipers injury report

Who is out or questionable for Week 3 of the new and improved XFL? We break down the Houston and Tampa Bay final injury reports.

Week 2 of the XFL is in the books and as we gain a better picture of how these teams stack up, we move into Week 3. If we go with the first two games as guidance, this matchup between the Vipers and Roughnecks is as lopsided as it gets, but this happens to be the second-closest game in point spread at -6.5 points favoring Houston.

Tampa Bay’s offense has been non-existent in their two losses, as their only touchdown was on a pick-six last week while the Roughnecks have scored the most points with 65 total in their two wins. The Roughnecks have given up the second-most points in the league, so Tampa Bay could finally get off the offensive touchdown schneid, but will miss a key offensive weapon this week, with tight end Nick Truesdell out.

The Vipers will also be without starting quarterback Aaron Murray, who will miss his second game. Murray wasn’t good in Week 1, but he was able to move the ball better than his backups in Week 2. At this point it looks like Murray would be the lesser of the evil options.

Defensive end Deiontrez Mount is questionable for Tampa Bay after not practicing this week. He starts, but hasn’t done much to distance himself from the pack so far.

The XFL’s leading receiver Camp Phillips, who went off for three touchdowns in Week 2, was able to get limited work in and is listed as probable. Sammie Coates was taken off the injury report after missing some time with a wrist injury. Phillip Walker should have all his weapons agains this week.
