Referee assignments, preseason week 4



The preseason concludes with a full slate of games on Thursday that all kick off generally in the 7:00 hour, local time. At least it was that way until Tropical Depression 9 became a looming threat to Florida, so the Buccaneers home game was moved to Wednesday. Craig Wrolstad will head the crew of the rescheduled game in Tampa.

There are three officials that are getting a tryout at the referee position. They are heading the the crews that they will be working on during the regular season. It is not clear if the tryout officials are working a half or a whole game.

Times listed below are Eastern. NFL Network live games will be shown on local stations in the team’s home markets.
