  • Bill Williamson of ESPN could see WR Rod Streater landing the No. 3 role, assuming he can remain healthy.

  • Breer adds that the “door is open” for Kirk Cousins to win the job.
  • According to Breer, there has not been a final declaration on who will be the team’s starting quarterback for Week 1, regardless of the health situation of Robert Griffin III or any other players.


  • According to Aaron Wilson, OT Duane Brown will not require surgery on his injured finger, and is on track to play in the regular season opener.
