DEFENSIVE RADIO DEVICE EFFECTIVE: MLB Paul Posluszny commented at halftime on the effectiveness of the radio communication in the helmet during play in the first half.

Tough break for Wright
Posted By: Chris Brown | Time: 8:59 PM ET

TOUGH BREAK FOR WRIGHT: Wright had a nice run going there, but looked like he was running too upright which exposes the ball a bit more. Coach Studesville had been talking to Wright in training camp this past week about keeping his pad level low.

HAMDAN IN FOR 3RD QUARTER: Gibran Hamdan is now quarterbacking the offense as J.P. Losman's night is over. Losman went 7-9 for 73 yards a touchdown and a sack.

HARDY TD!!!!!!!!: Glad to see James redeem himself after the penalty and drop earlier. Guy is a red zone threat plain and simple.

Youboty has been having decent camp

YOUBOTY HAS HAD DECENT CAMP: Ashton Youboty had the INT on what looked like a miscommunication by Washington. Youboty has been having a decent camp thus far at St. John Fisher, and this obviously helps his cause.

Edwards done for the night

EDWARDS DONE FOR THE NIGHT: He finished the game 1-5 for 18 yards.

STROUD GETS ONE SERIES: Marcus Stroud got just one series as Spencer Johnson is now in for him.

Taylor flipped over to right side

TAYLOR FLIPPED OVER TO RIGHT SIDE: Langston Walker is getting a look at Jason Taylor as the former Dolphin has flipped over to the RDE spot. That's two false starts that Taylor has been a part of on two series.

Parrish and McKelvin double returners
Posted By: Chris Brown | Time: 7:24 PM ET

PARRISH AND MCKELVIN DOUBLE RETURNERS: Both Roscoe Parrish and Leodis McKelvin were back deep for Buffalo on that last punt. It's a look that will give AFC East opponents something to think about for the regular season.

REDSKINS WIN TOSS: They've elected to receive.

Jason Taylor on Chambers
Posted By: Chris Brown 7:06 PM ET

JASON TAYLOR ON CHAMBERS: When Jason Taylor was acquired by the Redskins he was immediately lined up on the left side at LDE/LB while Andre Carter remained at RDE. So Langston Walker will be facing Carter, while Chambers will be facing Taylor.

Devin Thomas just took warmups

DEVIN THOMAS JUST TOOK WARMUPS: The rookie receiver warmed up in full pads, but is now out of pads and will not play.

Bowen now on injured reserve
Posted By: Chris Brown | Time: 6:49 PM ET

BOWEN NOW ON INJURED RESERVE: Bills rookie LB Alvin Bowen who by rule had to be placed on waived-injured, cleared the 24-hour waiver process and has automatically reverted to injured reserve, where he will be for the 2008 season.

Devin Thomas dressed for Skins
Posted By: Chris Brown | Time: 6:31 PM ET

DEVIN THOMAS DRESSED FOR SKINS: He wasn't supposed to play tonight due to a hamstring injury, but Redskins rookie WR Devin Thomas is dressed for the game tonight and is wearing jersey number 11.

It will be interesting to watch a couple of the best wideouts in the draft tonight in Thomas and James Hardy.

Bills wearing throwbacks tonight
Posted By: Chris Brown | Time: 6:29 PM ET

BILLS WEARING THROWBACKS TONIGHT: Buffalo is wearing their electric blue throwback jerseys for tonight's preseason opener. They'll also obviously be wearing the white helmets with the red standing buffalo.

Hardy to start
Posted By: Chris Brown | Time: 12:18 PM ET

HARDY TO START: Bills second-round pick James Hardy will not only play Saturday night against Washington, he'll be starting with the first unit on offense. Hardy may have drawn the starting assignment whether Josh Reed was appearing in this game or not.

The first team offense is only getting 10 to 20 plays. Whether Hardy only gets that many snaps remains to be seen. It could depend on his hamstring, which the staff likely does not want to overtax.

McKelvin to get return work
Posted By: Chris Brown | Time: 12:05 PM ET

MCKELVIN TO GET RETURN WORK: Terrence McGee and Roscoe Parrish are scheduled to get the first kickoff and punt return respectively in tonight's preseason game. But after that top pick Leodis McKelvin is to get returns on both kickoffs and punts.

McKelvin has been taking reps behind Parrish on punts during camp and has also been part of the rotation on kickoffs.
