We now know most of the Redskins’ preseason schedule.
The preseason opener will be played in Baltimore on Thursday, August 10, according to the Ravens’ official website. The time has not been set but last year the Ravens played a Thursday preseason home game at 7:30 so it’s safe to assume that it will be at a time close to that.

The NFL previously announced that the Redskins will host the Bengals in a nationally televised preseason game at 4:30 on August 27. When the team released the preseason schedule, it noted that the last preseason game at Tampa Bay will be played On Thursday, August 31.
The only preseason game that does not yet have a set date is Washington’s home game with the Packers. That will be the Redskins’ second preseason game and will be played sometime between August 17-20.
With the date of the preseason opener known, we have a pretty good idea of when training camp will open in Richmond, VA. Teams can have their players report to camp 15 days prior to the first preseason game. That would mean that they will report to Richmond on Wednesday, July 26 and start practice the next day.
