"We have been in regular communication with administrators from the Tampa Sports Authority, Hillsborough County, the City of Tampa and the National Weather Service over the past day as it has become apparent that the most severe weather associated with Tropical Depression Nine will likely make landfall on Thursday," Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford said in a release distributed by the Buccaneers this evening. "This decision was made by both teams in conjunction with the National Football League and local authorities in an effort to ensure the safety of our fans, players and stadium staff."

"We support the decision made by the Buccaneers and the NFL," Redskins President Bruce Allen said. "We look forward to our game on Wednesday."

Date/Time: Wednesday, Aug. 31, at 8 p.m. ET.
