Redskins vs. Jets Preseason Week 2: Date, time, TV channel, live stream, how to watch

After a fight-filled start to joint practices between the Redskins and Jets, the Skins' 2018 NFL preseason schedule continues Thursday night at Fed Ex Field against New York. 

Week 2 of the NFL preseason still doesn't provide a lot of answers to questions about team performance, but it begins to reveal the depth the Redskins could have this season.

One storyline that won't be taking place, is the return of former Redskin Terrelle Pryor, who told reporters after Monday's practice he won't be playing in the game.

The Redskins have bigger things to worry about though, like who will replace rookie Derrius Guice, who's now out for the year with a torn ACL.

The Redskins also have one less name in the fight for receiver depth as well, after Robert Davis suffered a season-ending leg injury as well.

Redskins starters training camp one-liners, defense

Redskins starters training camp one-liners, defense

During training camp, it’s natural for the media coverage to gravitate towards the long shots and underdogs and the backups fighting to hang on to a roster spot. The starters go out and do their thing and those players doing their thing isn’t news. 

With that in mind, here is a one-liner review of how each anticipated starter fared in training camp. We started with the offense yesterday, the defense is up today. 

DE Jonathan Allen—On the first day of camp, he said that he wants the defense to be “badass” and he has done his part throughout camp. 

NT Daron Payne—After recovering from an ankle injury ahead of schedule he went out and started tossing around some Redskins offensive linemen and then did the same to Jets O-linemen when they came to town. 

DE Matt Ioannidis—He first battled turf toe and then he suffered ankle and knee injuries, so he is still working his way back to being 100 percent. 

OLB Preston Smith—He has been impressive although it must be noted that for most 11 on 11 snaps he has been working against rookie left tackle Geron Christian, not the rehabbing Trent Williams. 

OLB Ryan Kerrigan—He turns 30 today and he looks as good as ever. 

ILB Zach Brown—His pass coverage seems to have improved in his second year in the defense, although it must be noted that as camp went on he became familiar with what the offense was running. 

ILB Mason Foster—Like Brown, he needs to get some snaps against different teams after the grind of camp. 

CB Josh Norman—The veteran continues to set the pace as he continued to work on the field well after practice ended nearly every day, often giving pointers to young defensive backs, and then signing autographs for the remaining fans. 

CB Quinton Dunbar—One of his strengths has been his confidence and that will only grow after the release of Orlando Scandrick. 

S Montae Nicholson—The Redskins made some changes to how they use their safeties and the learning curve has had Nicholson struggling in coverage at times. 

S D.J. Swearinger—He has missed several days over the last week or so with an undisclosed injury but his taunting game is in midseason form, as evidenced by his fake punch at Terrelle Pryor.
