Which Washington Commanders players find themselves fighting for their futures during the team's preseason finale against the Cincinnati Bengals?
Things are looking up for the Washington Commanders both on and off the field. Josh Harris' ownership group is making some positive changes despite the limited timeframe before the 2023 season commences and although it's still the preseason, everything seems to be going according to plan on the football side of things aside from a couple of key injuries that warrant concern.
Looking at the grand scheme of things, most roster positions are locked up. Ron Rivera will look to solve his remaining riddles this weekend against the Cincinnati Bengals by resting most of his starters and giving those on the fringes a chance to shine.
This represents one final chance for some to prove their worth. Even if certain individuals don't make the 53-man roster, they can enhance their claims of getting picked up by another team or securing a place on the practice squad once they clear waivers.
With this in mind, here are four Commanders players whose jobs are in jeopardy during Saturday's warmup game at FedEx Field.
Trent Scott - Commanders OL
Things improved across the Washington Commanders' offensive line during their preseason triumph against the Baltimore Ravens. It's far from perfect just yet, but cohesion seems to be building within the starting unit as they look to avoid becoming the weak link once again in 2023.
The starting five seems solid aside from the questions at left guard. There are also some young studs occupying reserve positions that could develop into something more, which might leave the likes of Trent Scott on the outside looking in when the time for final cuts arrives.
Scott was a free-agent acquisition that has the position versatility Ron Rivera normally looks for in his offensive linemen. However, it does look like he is fighting a losing battle to make the 53-man roster as things stand.
