Quarterback Landry Jones will make his debut when he starts for Dallas Renegades (0-1) on Sunday, head coach Bob Stoops announced.

“We’re planning on starting Landry and playing the whole game and protecting him like we need to,” Stoops said, via Pro Football Talk. “But he’s felt good all week, so we’re anxious to see him out there.”

Last weekend, Jones missed week one against St. Louis Battlehawks after suffering a knee injury at training camp.

“Yeah, Landry’s practiced all week,” Stoops said. “He looks great, feels good, and so, yeah, he’s been working with the ones all week and has felt his knee has held up and felt really good.”

Phillip Nelson, Minnesota Gopher, QB, substituting for Jones threw 33-of-42, 209 yards, 79%, 1 INT in Dallas' 15-9 loss.

Jones looks to give the franchise their first win when Los Angeles Wildcats hosts the Renegades on Sunday 2 pm/ct.
