Richmond, Va. - Tuesday, the Redskins took the field in Richmond for the final time before their preseason opener.
Washington worked out at 1:35pm. The team will then travel to Atlanta Wednesday for its first preseason game Thursday night.
"[We have] four good preseason games, the first two are what they are – a chance to get our veteran guys and our starters a couple of reps, work up a sweat," head coach Jay Gruden explained. "It’s a chance for some of our young guys to push into the starting role or the backup role. These games, although they don’t count in the win-loss record, they count big-time as far as who your 53 players are. Scoreboard aside, it’s a very important time for us.”
Monday, Gruden announced knee soreness will keep Surry County HS product Reggie Diggs from making his professional debut. Also ruled out for Thursday's preseason game at Atlanta: Jamison Crowder, Derek Carrier, Josh Doctson and "probably" Trent Williams.
