Former University of Hawai‘i Warrior and current third-string Washington Redskins quarterback Colt Brennan will see playing time in the next preseason game against the New York Jets.
Head Coach Jim Zorn said yesterday at a post-practice media session that Brennan will play late in the game. Jason Campbell will get the start, then pass the role to Todd Collins.
“I am going to switch the other two guys and let Derrick Devine play in the third quarter. Then, I want to see what Colt can do at the end of the game with either clock management or a two-minute situation if we find ourselves behind in the score,” Zorn said.
On the Redskins’ Web site’s depth chart, Brennan is currently listed third down the line. Brennan made his official National Football League debut in the Redskins’ 30-16 win over the Indianapolis Colts where he went 9-for-10 for 123 yards and two touchdowns.
His last performance against the Buffalo Bills was not as impressive. Brennan was 4-for-8 for 87 yards.
The Redskins signed the rookie to a four-year, $1.8 million deal last month.
The Redskins will take a break from training camp today and resume on Wednesday.
