Referee assignments, preseason week 2

Referee assignments and development officials scheduled for preseason Week 2



In the second week of the preseason, the officiating department will continue to experiment with the middle judge, development program officials, and the interleague agreement with Canadian Football League officials. This week will also feature a new white-hat tryout, as back judge Shawn Hochuli will work at the referee position during the Colts-Cowboys contest on Saturday.

The middle judge is shown below with the jersey number of the official. Officials in the development program are listed in italics and, for those who have been in the program before, their jersey number. CFL officials are shown with a Canadian flag 🇨🇦.

All times Eastern. Live games on NFL Network will be telecast on local stations only in both teams’ markets. Jerome Boger’s crew is off this week.
