Considering the events over the last week dominated all headlines, here's a quick reminder: The Washington Redskins' preseason finale takes place Thursday night.
Matchup: Jacksonville Jaguars at Washington Redskins
Game: Thursday, Sept. 3
Time: 7:30 p.m. ET
Where: FedEx Field
Television: Comcast SportsNet/NBC-4
Radio: Redskins Radio Network (Washington - 980 AM)
Odds: Redskins (-4.5), Over/Under 40
Three things to watch:
- It's the final cut-down - The Redskins must trim the roster from 75 to 53 by Saturday, which makes Thursday the final opportunity Rashad Ross, Trey Williams, Houston Bates and others battling to stick around.
- Solo artist - Colt McCoy is expected to play the entire game at quarterback. Kirk Cousins will sit out with the other starters. Robert Griffin III remains in the NFL's concussion protocal program.
- Bumps and bruises - Stating the obvious, but no injuries would be a good thing.
- Projecting the final 53-man roster
- "Five W's": Jaguars talk with Brian Jackson
- The leadership of Kirk Cousins
- Can RG3 still savage his career?
