The Redskins will have to piece together their backup outside linebacker situation. None have stood out but each offers something. Houston Bates hasn't won a lot of rushes but probably is better suited to stopping the run. He's worked with the starters with Preston Smith attending a funeral. But the other primary options there are more suited to pass rush specialists such as Willie Jefferson. The Redskins will need to keep an eye on the waiver wire as they try to full Junior Gallete's roster spot.

Corner Bashaud Breeland made another big play this afternoon. Receiver Maurice Harris ran a wheel route from the inside and had maybe a half step on Breeland. But Breeland turned at the last second and intercepted the Kirk Cousins pass. Breeland hasn't been perfect but he continues to stand out.

Bills sign DT Casey Walker and release DE Cedric Reed.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

He isn't likely to make the roster at this point, but Quinshad Davis has had a pretty good day. He had a strong one-handed catch against air and a couple nice catches in 11-on-11 work in the end zone. He has a really good frame.

Russell Wilson takes a break in between practice and his press conference to sign autographs. Wilson said he's leaned down to 215 pounds. After having led the NFL in passer rating last year, Wilson returns his top four receivers. One of them, wide receiver Doug Baldwin, complimented Wilson on his haircut.

Over the next two days the Cowboys will have their offense and defense work on separate fields so players can get a accustomed football again before the pads come on. Here's Jason Garrett: "Well I believe this from the bottom of my heart: football is as safe as it's ever been. And our league has done an amazing job putting safety first and there's so many different things they've done to that end. Obviously rules changes, equipment changes and just how we operate on a day to day basis. I think they've made our game better. One of the things that's happened is we practice less. We don't practice as much in the gear that we play the games in as we used to. But at the end of the day this is how we do it and we have to make it, we have to make the best of it and help take full advantage of this opportunity that we do in fact have. That's really our approach to it. We don't think oftentimes about the good old days. That really doesn't do anybody any good. We focus on what the rules are now and we create the best environment for our players and our team."

Receiver DeSean Jackson and Kirk Cousins connected again, this time on a post. As Jackson won to the inside he raised his hand and Cousins spotted him. Good work by both sides as Jackson did not appear to be the primary receiver. Jackson split the defensive backs, including DeAngelo Hall. Hall later talked with secondary coach Perry Fewell for several minutes.

Two Bengals rookies, Tyler Boyd and Cody Core, have been carted back to the stadium. Could be an issue of leg cramps. Core had that issue in rookie camp.
