The Washington Redskins have typically rested their starters in the fourth preseason game under head coach Mike Shanahan, but six starters are expected to take the field tonight for additional seasoning.
Baker will play at least one quarter this evening as he continues to adjust to the defensive end role.
Rambo stands to benefit from the extended look as he is in position to secure the starting free safety job, playing alongside Meriweather for the first time this preseason.
Meriweather has been sidelined since Week 11 of the 2012 season with a torn ACL and the coaching staff has been cautious in his return to action. Tonight's performance could dictate how much he will be used in Week 1, 11 days away.
Wilson looks to hold on to his starting cornerback role as he suits up for the second time this preseason. Wilson faces challenges for starting time from
Morgan has been used sparingly this presason, getting three catches on 23 snaps in Game 1, one catch on 11 snaps in Game 2 and no catches in 22 snaps on Saturday.
Davis is still being brought back from the torn Achilles' that ended his 2012 season and could use the seasoning and consistent play ahead of Week 1.
With that being said, here is a list of the projected starting lineup for tonight's contest:
- QB: Pat White
- WR: Joshua Morgan
- TE: Fred Davis
- DE Chris Baker
- CB Josh Wilson
- CB David Amerson
- S Brandon Meriweather
- S Bacarri Rambo
