It certainly looks like all four of the DNPs are on their way to sitting out this week. Defensive coordinator Phil Snow told reporters today that Brian Burns won’t play. Also, coach Matt Rhule says Christian McCaffrey is dying to, but he’s just not ready yet.

As for their opponents, Washington has some uncertainty going on at quarterback. Alex Smith says he expects to play but Dwayne Haskins took first-team reps at practice today and looks on track to start Sunday.
