The Redskins also released the details of their preseason slate tonight. They play the four games in a span of 21 days.
The highlight is a Saturday afternoon game at FedEx Field against the Colts. The game is almost certain to feature the top two picks in the draft, quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. It is widely expected that Griffin will be suiting up for the home team while Luck will be a Colt.
Washington will have a quick turnaround with just three days off before facing the Bucs at FedEx.
The first two games will be on the road in Buffalo and Chicago.
All four preseason games will be available in HD exclusively on Comcast SportsNet.
