Sean Taylor tribute video

Font size:

For all of the No. 21 jerseys, twirling white towels and handwritten signs in the stands Sunday, for all of the red-and-yellow flowers and burning candles at a makeshift memorial outside the stadium, for all of the pregame tributes to the Pro Bowl safety, the most stark reminder of Taylor's plight came when the Washington Redskins lined up on defense for the first time since he was killed.

Instead of 11 Redskins on the field, as rules allow, there were 10.

When the visiting Buffalo Bills prepared to run their first play on offense midway through the opening quarter, the man who replaced Taylor in Washington's lineup, Reed Doughty, stood near coaches on the sideline.

"It was important for the team to know that Sean was with us that one last time on the field," Doughty said. "He'll always be with us, but that was special."
"We were going to let him ride with us one more time," said Williams, who has described Taylor as being like a son to him.
After scoring the game's only touchdown, Redskins running back Clinton Portis, also a teammate of Taylor's at the University of Miami, lifted his jersey to reveal a T-shirt with a message in his good friend's memory.

After making his first catch, Redskins receiver Santana Moss -- another college teammate -- pounded his chest and put up a hand with his thumb and ring finger tucked down and the other three fingers raised. It was his way of saying, "21."
