Buccaneers Vs. Redskins: Preseason Finale To Feature Few Washington Starters

There are no inactives during the NFL's preseason, but already Washington Redskins fans can expect plenty of "non-participants" in Wednesday's preseason finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. According to CBS Sports' Grant Paulsen, there are about 27 Redskins players that are participating in pregame warm-ups as if they're not going to play.

Defensive line: Stephen Bowen, Barry Cofield, Adam Carriker, Jarvis Jenkins and Chris Baker.

Linebackers: Brian Orakpo, London Fletcher, Perry Riley and Ryan Kerrigan.

Defensive backs: DeAngelo Hall, Josh Wilson, Cedric Griffin, Brandon Meriweather, Tanard Jackson and Madieu Williams.

Offensive line: Trent Williams, Kory Lichtensteiger, Will Montgomery, Chris Chester, and Tyler Polumbus.

Running backs: Alfred Morris and Darrel Young.

Wide receivers: Pierre Garcon and Santana Moss.

Tight End: Fred Davis

Quarterbacks: Robert Griffin III and Rex Grossman

Paulsen noted that Chris Baker could be testing out his ankle, but this list should be a good indicator of who and who isn't playing.

Fred Davis To Sit Out Preseason Finale

Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis will not play in Wednesday's preseason finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a story from the Washington Posts' Mike Jones confirmed Tuesday.

Davis, who's seen limited action in the preseason because the team is trying to give converted tight end Niles Paul time to learn the position, says despite the lack of opportunities he's ready to go for the season opener, Sept. 9, against the New Orleans Saints.

On Saturday, Davis caught his longest ball of the preseason -- a 11-yard catch and run -- in the Skins' third preseason game, a 30-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

‘’It felt good to get the ball, have people trying to tackle you for real. It makes a difference,’’ Davis said. ‘’Being involved in a whole drive, I got to work on my route running, some blocking. Made some plays. I feel good.’’
