Philip Buchanan will be suspended for the Redskins first four games, including the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys. The reasons for this is suspension are currently unknown, but as this happens look for young defensive backs to make their mark on the 53-man roster.
Grant Paulsen identified, and I agree, that Reggie Jones looks to be making moves to make the 53 man roster. DeAngelo Hall and Josh Wilson are locks to make the team. With Buchanan unavailable, Kevin Barnes is projected to be in the running to be the nickel. Look for Jones to complete with four year cornerback and special teams standout Byron Westbrook.
