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.

Camp Battles: Zach Brown and Mason Foster are locks, but questions after that

Camp Battles: Zach Brown and Mason Foster are locks, but questions after that

RICHMOND -- Zach Brown nearly finished the 2017 season as the top tackler in the NFL, even after missing a few games. Brown is a tackling machine, and an absolute lock to make the Redskins 53-man roster.

Mason Foster got hurt early in the 2017 season, but was an obvious leader and a strong contributor. His interception sealed the Week 2 win in Los Angeles, and his roster spot is way more than sealed. 

After those two, things get interesting. 

Josh Harvey-Clemons made the team in 2017 as a bit of a surprise, but it won't be a surprise this year. The long, rangy JHC actually played safety in college at Louisville, and seems much more comfortable in his linebacker role this time around. He doesn't have the elite speed of Brown, but Harvey-Clemons can really run, and the organization likes that along with his penchant to find the football. He's going to make this team. 

Before we keep going, remember that the Redskins kept five inside linebackers breaking camp last year. If the team decides to go with five this year, three players are competing for two spots: Zach Vigil, Shaun Dion Hamilton and Martrell Spaight. 

Washington just used a sixth round draft pick to select Hamilton out of Alabama. A sixth-rounder isn't a fortune, but the 'Skins did trade up to grab him, in a similar move to their selection of Chase Roullier in 2016. Doug Williams has talked glowingly about Hamilton, as well as Alabama coach Nick Saban. If he can stay healthy, it would make sense for Washington to keep him on the roster.

So the real battle becomes Vigil against Spaight. Late last year after a number of injuries, Vigil got playing time over Spaight when both players were healthy. Vigil is the better linebacker, though Spaight is the better athlete and offers more on special teams. Neither player is under contract for the 2019 season either, so the front office does not have the threat of dead money on the cap making this decision. 

The team chose to play Vigil last year, and that decision is telling. Also, early in training camp when Foster missed time with a minor injury, Vigil came on as his replacement. 

Those signals mean Spaight has a lot to prove over the next few weeks in Richmond.

Josh Doctson exits Redskins training camp with apparent shoulder injury

Josh Doctson exits Redskins training camp with apparent shoulder injury

The Redskins desperately need former first-round draft pick Josh Doctson to make the leap to bona fide difference-maker in 2018.

The oft-injured wide receiver is an exceptional route-runner with great ball-tracking skills. But staying healthy has always been a concern with Doctson.

On Day 6 of the Redskins 2018 training camp, Josh Doctson went to the ground trying to make a catch at the team's morning practice and landed hard after it looked like Josh Norman landed on him.

Early information is that it seems to be an issue with his left arm or shoulder.

Doctson exited the field with members of the Redskins training staff and headed toward the medical tent. 

Doctson is no stranger to injuries in training camp, having dealt with an Achillies injury that took away all but two games his rookie year alone.

Following the practice, the Redskins confirmed that Doctson is being evaluated for a shoulder injury.

UPDATE: Doctson took to Twitter to let everyone know he's fine.
