Dragons vs. BattleHawks Injury Report

Last week the Dragons were without starting left tackle Isaiah Battle (ankle) for the third straight game, but he practiced on a limited basis this week and is probable to make his XFL debut.

But offensive lineman William Campbell (knee), who started at left guard in Weeks 1-2 and right tackle in Week 3, is questionable. He is trending in the right direction after getting in a limited session on Thursday, but his status is uncertain.

Wide receiver Kasen Williams (quad) will be out for his fourth straigh game, and on defense, the Dragons will be without starting defensive tackle Anthony Moten (ankle), who hasn’t played since Week 1.

As for the BattleHawks, they are in full-blown Patriots territory with their injury report. On Thursday, four previously injured players practiced in full, one player had a limited session and two players did not practice.

All seven of them are listed as questionable.

This is the third straight week in which starting running back Matt Jones (knee) has been technically questionable after a string of limited practices, but the BattleHawks are just managing his workload. He’s fully expected to play.

Starting center Brian Folkerts (illness) and starting edge defender Will Clarke (knee) both missed practice on Thursday. Of the two, Folkerts seems the likelier to play. Clarke missed Weeks 1-2 and played just 38 snaps in Week 3. Matthew Freedman

Key Mismatch

BattleHawks Pass Offense vs. Dragons Pass Defense

With all the excitement for the Houston Roughnecks passing game, but BattleHawks passing offense has been somewhat overlooked.

But the BattleHawks are No. 1 with a 74.6 passing grade, ranking 6.1 points higher than the Roughnecks at No. 2, thanks primarily to their No. 1 receiving grade (72.5) and No. 1 pass blocking grade (89.7, per Pro Football Focus).
