had three tackles in his NFL preseason debut
The NFL Network's whiparound coverage of tonight's preseason games stopped long enough to see a couple of matchups between former UConn teammates Nick Williams and Blidi Wreh-Wilson.

Williams, an undrafted rookie free agent receiver, had a pair of catches for six yards in the Washington Redskins 22-21 win over Blidi Wreh-Wilson and the Tennessee Titans.

Williams' first pro catch was a screen pass as he was dropped for a one-yard loss. Although Wreh-Wilson, a third-round pick of the Titans, did not get credit for the tackle on the play he was in the backfield and helped disrupt the screen. Williams later dropped a pass with Wreh-Wilson the closest defender.Williams had a seven-yard catch during Washington's game-winning scoring drive.

Wreh-Wilson finished with three solo tackles in his preseason debut.

The game is set to be aired on NFL Network on Monday beginning at 5 p.m.

Robert McClain had two tackles in Atlanta's loss to Cincinnati, Kendall Reyes had one tackle in San Diego 's loss to Seattle and Dan Orlovsky did not play in Tampa Bay's loss to Baltimore.
