Bills vs. Redskins live chat, NFL preseason Week 3: first half open thread

Kevin Kolb gets the start today against the Washington Redskins as he tries to make his case for the starting quarterback job with EJ Manuel sidelined. We're talking about the first half of Bills/Redskins right here.

One week from today, the Buffalo Bills will need to cut their roster down to 53 players in preparation for the NFL regular season. Today, they start a whirlwind week-long process of reaching that eventuality with a preseason game on the road against the Washington Redskins.

Three players will not suit up for the Bills this afternoon: rookie quarterback EJ Manuel has a knee injury that everybody knows about by now, while pass rusher Kourtnei Brown will miss his second straight exhibition game with an injury of his own. Jairus Byrd is healthy - and he conducted a brief workout at FedExField earlier today with Bills trainers - but won't suit up, as he's been back in the fold for less than three days.

We're chatting about the first half of this contest below. Again, a reminder: do not request or provide links for illegal game streams on our pages. Enjoy the first half, and go Bills!
