Robert Griffin III isn't playing in the preseason so Kirk Cousins was starting and taking all the first-team reps. The latter suffered a mid-foot sprain in last week's game and has yet to return to practice, however, so the next man on the depth chart is the 33-year-old Grossman. Pat White is the fourth quarterback and will presumably follow Grossman as the starters are expected to only play the first 20 snaps.
Grossman was listed as a third-string quarterback last season, but he didn't appear in a single game. He hasn't been a starter since 2011 and might be a bigger longshot to make the final roster if Griffin and Cousins didn't both have injury concerns.
