Attn Redskins Historians: Did Desmond Howard wear #92 in the preseason during his rookie year?

OK....when the Skins drafted Desmond Howard, it was in the era before WRs could wear #'s between 10-19, right? That being said...am I imagining things, or did he wear #92 for a game or two in the preseason before switching to #80? I'm pretty sure the #'s 80-89 were taken and he took #80 after someone was cut. Someone help me with this...it's been bothering me!

I see pictures of him wearing #82 and #80 in the B&G in google searches

I think the 82's are Randle El... Google search algorithms struggle to differentiate between overhyped underachieving former Redskin punt returners...

I have an old program that I got at a preseason game in '94 with Howard as 80. Not his first year tho... :whoknows:

I just found this image of Desmond Howard, but I am sure it's not him, look at the face mask looks like a LB, no way a WR would wear that face mask plus it doesn't look like him. What do you guys think? Curious.

Here are other pics with a WR face mask:

Signatures are exactly the same

The signatures are the same, but it's definitely not him in the picture. Someone could have taken that photo to a signing day and he would have just signed it without a second thought.

I think that might be a picture of Huey Richardson, a LB/DE who made a brief appearance on the 1992 team.

Thanks HB, I was sure it wasn't him.

I just did a google search on Huey Richardson Redskins and that same image came up, he was #90. Damn your good.

I just saw that, the funny thing is it looks like they actually mislabeled the picture too. :ols:

The other guy it might be is Terry Crews from the 1995 team. Both are scrub-esque players that were only here one year, but Terry Crews went on to be much more well known as this guy:

1992 Preseason Finale

Yeah I remember that game.

They looked horrible. I remember sitting through that game to the very end only because it was the debut of Desmond Howard in a Redskins uniform and I wanted to see him play. :doh:

howard only played the last preseason game.

he was a camp hold out.

If he wore another number, he wore it in training only - not in a game.
