The preseason is finally here and there will be a Redskins football game on tonight! The Redskins take on the New England Patriots at 7:30pm.
The Redskins will be missing several starters on offense(Trent Williams, Morgan Moses, Chris Thompson, Jamison Crowder), and will have a few more that will be limited if they play at all(Jordan Reed, Josh Doctson). This means a short Redskins debut for QB Alex Smith, and a whole lotta Colt McCoy!
Redskins fans will have to wait a little longer to see 1st round pick Daron Payne on the field, but last year's top pick Jonathan Allen should be out there. Everyone is looking forward to seeing rookie RB Derrius Guice hit the field in the Burgundy and Gold. He has been popular in Washington since before he even got drafted. There will be plenty of future Mason/Brennan stars emerging from the shadows of training camp tonight. Can Not Wait!
