The Dallas Renegades are hosting the St. Louis BattleHawks in Week 1 of the 2020 XFL season, and we have a depth chart move due to injury. Dallas announced that Philip Nelson would start at quarterback over Landry Jones in the opener. The team announced that Jones was cleared to play following an injury, “but due to ‘limited reps in practice’ he will be the team’s No. 3 QB, according to Coach Bob Stoops.”

Nelson completed seven of his first eight passes for 33 yards in the first quarter against St. Louis.
