Cerrato checks in with the Beast

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley
IRVING, Texas -- I just returned to the Texas Stadium press box after spending a few minutes on the field with Redskins executive director of football operations Vinny Cerrato, who was a couple of steps away from owner Daniel Snyder. Cerrato told me today's outcome would all come down to how the offensive lines perform.

The Redskins will be without starting right tackle Stephon Heyer, which could mean a big day for Cowboys defensive end Greg Ellis. For the Cowboys, Cory Procter will replace starter Kyle Kosier for the third game this season.

Cerrato, who has a new weekly radio show on ESPN 980 in Washington, said the Redskins were well aware that a couple of Cowboys players had talked about how Jason Campbell "locks onto" receivers. That may have been the bulletin board material the Redskins have been looking for. And honestly, when did the threshold for trash talk get so low?

We're getting ready for introductions here in a few moments.
