The Redskins will open the preseason schedule against the Denver Broncos in the Hall of Fame game on Aug. 9 in Canton, Ohio, making Joe Gibbs the first Hall of Fame member to coach in this game. The Redskins and Broncos engaged in a blockbuster deal this offseason, with Washington sending Bailey and a second-round pick to Denver in exchange for Portis.
Washington will then host defending NFC champion Carolina the following week, date and time to be determined. The Redskins follow that with a trip to Miami the week of Aug. 19-23 and then they host St. Louis in a nationally televised game on Aug. 27.
The Redskins end the preseason by hosting Atlanta, again the time and date to be determined.
