Tonight is key for Campbell
“[The preseason] is important because we are a timing and rhythm team offensively and a lot of the things we do depend on timing,” Campbell said. “It’s something we really want to accomplish this preseason.”
In the last three preseason openers, the Redskins‘ starting quarterback has played an average of 16 snaps and attempted an average of 9.7 passes. Two years ago, Patrick Ramsey played the most snaps (23) and threw the most passes (12).
“If he gets two snaps or 42 snaps, I’m excited to watch him and then evaluate it and see how far he’s come,” Lazor said. “He’s done a lot of work during the spring, the mini-camp, the [organized team activities] and training camp and this is his first chance to apply it in a game.”
Aside from Campbell, tonight is the first chance for new left guard Todd Wade to gauge his progress after playing tackle his entire NFL career and on defense and the Redskins debuts of middle linebacker London Fletcher and rookie safety LaRon Landry.
“We plan on giving them a good test,” Gibbs said. “How long [the starters] will play depends on what happens. It will be interesting to see who does what.”
Note —Portis is making the trip to Tennessee but not playing. Five other players — cornerback Jerametrius Butler (hamstring), tight end Tyler Ecker (groin), receiver Brandon Lloyd (shin splints), defensive tackle Vaka Manupuna (quad) and left tackle Chris Samuels (knee) — will miss the game and not travel.
