The Washington Commanders will open training camp on July 27 at team headquarters in Ashburn, Virginia, before opening the season Sept. 11 at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Commanders added more depth at receiver this offseason with rookie Jahan Dotson and at running back with Brian Robinson Jr. Dotson looked sharp this spring and starting back Antonio Gibson dropped his body fat from 18 percent to around 12 percent and said he feels more explosive. Washington solidified quarterback by trading for Carson Wentz, though he has a lot to prove. Their line faces questions at guard after losing perennial Pro Bowler Brandon Scherff in free agency.

Defensively, the starters also appear set, but there are questions about their back seven depth. But perhaps the biggest question on defense will be: How do ends Chase Young and Montez Sweat play? It's uncertain if Young will be ready for the season after tearing the ACL/MCL in his right knee. But if Sweat ascends, the line will provide big trouble for offenses.

Here is a projection of the Commanders' roster:

QUARTERBACK (3): Carson Wentz, Taylor Heinicke, Sam Howell

There's no debate about who has what role: Wentz will start, Heinicke will be the primary backup and Howell will be the developmental guy. But keep an eye on undrafted free agent Cole Kelley for that third spot. He has a strong arm and, more importantly, is someone Washington liked early in the process last fall.
