Guardians vs. Renegades Injury Report

The Guardians are amazingly healthy. Every single player on their injury report for Thursday practiced in full. The only questionable player is free safety Andrew Soroh (head, knee), but he seems likely to suit up.

The player to monitor most is quarterback Matt McGloin (thorax), who missed Week 4. In his absence, the Guardians managed a 17-14 win over the Los Angeles Wildcats, but they averaged just 2.7 yards per play.

This week, McGloin reportedly split first-team reps with backup Luis Perez, who had a 69.3% completion rate in Week 4, so it’s not a given that McGloin will reclaim his starting job.

We might not have any clarity on the Guardians quarterback situation until a couple of hours before kickoff.

As for the Renegades, they will be without starting quarterback Landry Jones (knee) and starting left guard Salesi Uhatafe, who last played in Week 3. Otherwise, they are healthy — but it’s tremendously less than ideal for them to have a backup quarterback starting behind a compromised offensive line. — Matthew Freedman

Key Mismatch

Dallas Running Backs vs. Guardians Run Defense

With starting quarterback Landry Jones (knee) out, the Renegades will likely need to lean on their running backs.
