Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Friday he plans to play his starters for "at least a quarter" in the team's second preseason game against the Cleveland Browns on Monday night.
Washington's starters saw limited action in the preseason opener against the New England Patriots. Quarterback Robert Griffin III played just one series.
DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, Washington's top two receivers, sat out against New England but are expected to play against Cleveland.

Gruden also said two starters on the defense will miss Monday's game: safety Brandon Meriweather and defensive end Jason Hatcher.
Brian Hoyer will start at quarterback over rookie Johnny Manziel for the Browns, though the two will receive equal reps with the first-team offense.
