The Washington Redskins' 2019 campaign officially kicks off with their preseason opener against the Cleveland Browns Thursday night.

Soon fans will receive answers to the many questions of training camp, like who should be the Redskins' starting quarterback come September.

Colt McCoy will sit out the first preseason game, as Craig Hoffman reported for 106.7 The Fan Wednesday evening. That leaves Case Keenum, Josh Woodrum and Dwayne Haskins to run the offense. How Redskins coach Jay Gruden divvies up their time on the field could be telling as to how he prioritizes the quarterbacks on the real depth chart.

It will also be Redskins fans' first look at Landon Collins in action, on a retooled defense that also includes first-round edge rusher Montez Sweat.
