Defenders placed CB Jalen Myrick on the Injured/Reserve List
Myrick played under PJ Fleck at Minnesota, before setting a Big Ten record with his 4.28s 40-yard dash at the 2017 NFL Combine. He was drafted by the Jaguars in the seventh round of that year’s NFL Draft. After a lackluster rookie season, Jalen was waived and spent the following two seasons fighting for roster spots on the Vikings and Falcons.
He was drafted by the DC Defenders in the third round of the fourth phase (cornerbacks and safeties) in the 2020 XFL Draft.
His injury has not been disclosed.
St. Louis BattleHawks
BattleHawks WAIVED OT Brandon Watson
The 6-6, 300 lbs lineman was named to the Heart of America Conference All-Conference first team in 2018. He was noted for helping expanding MNU’s reliance on the run game in 2018, providing cover for freshman running back Jamar Moya, who ran for over a thousand yards behind Watson’s blocks.
