WFT Debuts for Rookie LB, Veteran QB

Locked On Washington: Preview of Thursday night's preseason opener vs. New England

The Washington Football Team will play its first football game since losing in Wild Card Weekend to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Thursday night, it's Brady's former team that stands across the trenches in the New England Patriots.

WFT has lofty expectations heading into the season, being a defending division champion. Though starters aren't expected to play significant snaps, this will be its first metric to see if their goals are realistic.

Rookie Jamin Davis will make his NFL debut and is listed as the team's starting middle linebacker on the team's unofficial depth chart. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will make his WFT debut, marking the ninth NFL franchise he has played for.

It's uncertain as to how long the starters will play in the preseason, but head coach Ron Rivera has made it very clear that he plans to play his best players.
