What to watch for: Bills-Redskins

It's the moment we've all been waiting for -- Week 3 of the NFL preseason. We'll see more established stars and potential starters than any other week of the preseason. Around The NFL's Conor Orr dissects what you can expect to see from the 16 games this weekend.

Here's what to what to watch for ...

BILLS at REDSKINS, 7:30 p.m.

» Seantrel Henderson made his return to practice this week, and according to the Buffalo News, the former 16-game starter made his presence known. Henderson missed nearly a year with Crohn's Disease, but could find himself in the thick of things soon. Amid a very crowded tackle depth chart in Buffalo, his frame and intensity make him hard to ignore. Hopefully Ryan allows him the chance to suit up this weekend.

» Linebacker Bryson Albright is climbing up the Bills' depth chart and could be your plucky undrafted free agent to keep an eye on against Washington. As the News noted, that distinction was once handed to Eric Striker, but now Rex Ryan & Co. seem to be favoring the Miami (Ohio) product.

» Robert Kelley is the currently the Redskins' en vogue running back now that Matt Jones is out for the rest of the preseason. Keith Marshall struggled again a week ago, leaving the team desperate to find a dependable option at No. 2. This could be the game that convinces Washington whether or not to hit the waiver wire on cut down day.
