Reid to start at RT, Foxworth at CB

The Ravens are going with an interesting offensive line alignment tonight against the Redskins, as they've slotted new offensive tackle/guard Mark LeVoir in at right guard and rookie Jah Reid at right tackle with the first-team offense.

LeVoir has been getting the bulk of the first-team reps at right tackle since signing with the Ravens on Saturday, but he'll slide over to guard tonight, at least to begin the game.

Newly signed offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie is on the sideline tonight, wearing gym shorts and a black Ravens long-sleeve shirt. He's been talking with right guard Marshal Yanda for the last 10 minutes or so; Yanda will also not play tonight as he's still dealing with back spasms.

Meanwhile, on the defensive side of the ball, Domonique Foxworth will start at cornerback along with Cary Williams. This will be Foxworth's most extended playing time since tearing his ACL last July.

Jimmy Smith started alongside Williams last week against the Chiefs, but Smith will come off the bench tonight.

As expected, it looks like Tom Zbikowski will start at strong safety tonight. Bernard Pollard had gotten the starting nod against Kansas City.

Rookie defensive end Michael McAdoo, signed this week after going undrafted in the supplemental draft, is in uniform and wearing No. 70.

The Ravens will wear purple jerseys and white pants tonight, while the Redskins are in their white jerseys and burgundy pants.

After Kelly Gregg, Le'Ron McClain, Jared Gaither and Jim Zorn returned to Baltimore last week with the Chiefs, we've got another big-time reunion tonight.

Seven former Ravens - cornerback Josh Wilson, offensive guard Chris Chester, wide receiver Donte' Stallworth, quarterback John Beck, kicker Graham Gano, linebacker Edgar Jones and long snapper Nick Sundberg - are back on the field at M&T Bank Stadium tonight after playing here as Ravens.

The defense will get the individual intros tonight ... and that's all the pregame info I have. I'm spent. Check in with you at some point post-kickoff.
