A wild story is coming out of the XFL involving former Orlando Guardians quarterback Quinten Dormady.
According to a report from Dov Kleiman, Dormady allegedly game team plays from the Guardians’ playbook to an opposing team. After investigating the incident, the Guardians cut Dormady.
The former Tennessee Vols signal-caller’s name and statistics have also been wiped from the official XFL website.

Dormady had thrown for just 142 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions for the 0-2 Guardians.
It’s been a rough start to the XFL season for the Guardians, who are coached by Terrell Buckley, with the head coach going as far as to call for new players during an embarrassing loss.

With Dormady apparently on the outs, Paxton Lynch, who was benched in each of Orlando’s first two games, will return as the team’s starting quarterback.
The former first-round NFL Draft pick has thrown for 204 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, completing 59 percent of his passes.
The XFL’s on-field product may not be the best through two weeks and the rating are tanking, but at least the league has provided us with some incredible moments and hilarious stories.
