Around the League – Week 4

Tampa Bay Vipers Fans

We’re at the midpoint of the 2020 XFL regular season and in Week 4, the action has not slowed down. From injuries on and off the field to sustained crowds in Saint Louis and the inaugural Texas Throwdown, it was another week of captivating storylines.

Renegade Leg Injuries Abound

It was Landry Jones who drew headlines when he re-injured his knee on Saturday. Jones was tackled in the fourth quarter and after an MRI it was announced that he sustained further damage to his left knee. Hopefully Landry will be able to recover quickly to full health and we wish him the best of luck in his treatment.

However it was his offensive coordinator who made Twitter news when it was announced that he had broken his leg after being run into by his running back Cameron Artis-Payne. Renegades OC Hal Mumme coached the rest of the game and will be calling next weeks game against the NY Guardians from the booth.

Mumme wanted to make sure it was clear that he was in good spirits about the injury tweeting, “I’m not soft #AirRaid.”

Fans of the Week

XFL fans continue to be creative with homemade and incredible costumes to show their support for their teams. Our two favorites of Week 4 include the giant bunny head at the Guardians game and another home made costume from a Tampa Bay Vipers fan.
