Rex Ryan will not inform players who are being cut today as part of 75-man cutdown until after practice. "For no better term, we're gonna use this -- we can practice today -- I guess we'll use guys as cannon fodder, if you will," he said. "But that's not really the case. I mean, it is the case, but it's also, if there is an injury or something like that, then you have your whole roster to choose from. But obviously we have a plan in place for letting guys go."

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills coach Rex Ryan believes that all coaches are in favor of eliminating the 75-man cutdown, which comes today at 4 p.m. and prevents some players on the roster bubble from competing in the fourth preseason game. The Redskins have proposed such a change to the NFL's bylaws for at least the past three league meetings, but it has not been passed.

Hall defends hit on Bills' Gragg: NFL says go low

Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall defended the hit that knocked Buffalo Bills tight end Chris Gragg out for the season, saying he just was tackling low, as the NFL wants.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills tight end Chris Gragg is out for the season, he announced Saturday afternoon on Instagram. Gragg suffered a left knee injury in last night's preseason loss to the Redskins. The fourth-year tight end wasn't a major contributor but had a strong chance for a 53-man roster spot. Buffalo could turn to Blake Annen or Nick O'Leary in his place.
