Our staff previews Saturday’s game, complete with their projected spread and a pick.

Roughnecks-Vipers Injury Report

The Roughnecks are about as healthy as they can be. For the second straight game, they will be without No. 3 running back De’Angelo Henderson (shoulder), and backup tackle Marques Tucker (knee) is also out, but they are otherwise healthy on both side of the ball.

The Vipers, however, are severely disadvantaged, especially on offense, where they will be without starting quarterback Aaron Murray (foot) and tight end Nick Truesdell (knee), who might be the team’s best all-around player.

On defense, the Vipers are also dealing with injuries along the line. Starting edge rusher Deiontrez Mount (thigh) is technically questionable, but he didn’t practice this week and looks unlikely to play. Rotational defensive tackle Ricky Walker (ankle) also missed practice all week and will probably sit. Matthew Freedman

Key Matchup

Renegades Pass Offense vs. Vipers Pass Defense

So far, the Houston passing game has been nothing short of spectacular. Quarterback P.J. Walker looks like the MVP frontrunner, and he has the league’s best pass-catching quartet in wide receivers Cam Phillips, Sammie Coates, Khalil Lewis and Nick Holley.

On Saturday, they get an exploitable Vipers secondary that likely won’t be able to hang with them.
