Denver Broncos: Players to watch against Washington Redskins
The Denver Broncos are ready for their dress rehearsal against the Washington Redskins. Which players will be in focus for this game?
The third preseason game is an opportunity for the Denver Broncos to get in a ‘dress rehearsal’ of sorts before the regular season, as teams usually keep their star players out or limited in the fourth and final preseason game.
Friday night’s game against the Washington Redskins is not necessarily a great opportunity for someone at the bottom of the roster to get tape out, as the Broncos will likely play their first and second-string players for the majority of the game.
In case you haven’t already checked it out, Predominantly Orange staff writer Andrew Wade has four storylines he’s following in this game, and you should be as well.
The Broncos’ starters haven’t all been on the field together at the same time yet this season.
That alone is worthy of keeping an eye on in this game as the entire starting offense (with the exception of possibly Ron Leary at left guard) is expected to be together for the first time this preseason.
These players have obviously gotten some work together in camp, but really how much?
If it wasn’t one player down with some injury, it was another.
The Broncos didn’t have Jeff Heuerman for much of training camp. They’ve given veterans different days off throughout camp.
It wouldn’t be a shocker if they could count on one hand the number of practices they’ve had 11-on-11 work with their entire starting unit offensively.
Will we get to see that on Friday night?
Let’s take a look at the players in focus for this game, including a number of prominent starters offensively.
