The loss of Vick may hurt the team in other ways. Monday night’s preseason opener against Cincinnati will be the first chance for the team to learn if Vick’s departure hurts attendance at the Georgia Dome. Vick wears the biggest-selling jersey in team history and is given much credit for the team’s 51 consecutive sellouts. Chiefs name Huard Damon Huard, who has spent his career backing up some of the NFL’s top quarterbacks, is finally No. 1. Coach Herm Edwards said the 11-year veteran will start for the Kansas City Chiefs. Huard hadn’t started a game since 2000, but went 5-3 last season after Trent Green was injured in the season opener. After Green demanded a trade to Miami this spring because he thought coaches planned to hand the job to Brodie Croyle, Huard spent the summer battling the second-year player from Alabama for the job. Weather is the winner The stadium lights dimmed while Kyle Boller’s throw was in mid-air.The pass was incomplete – just like the game at Landover, Md. With more lightning on the way, officials decided enough was enough. The exhibition between the Baltimore Ravens and Washington Redskins was halted with 11:38 remaining in the third quarter, giving the Redskins an abbreviated, 13-7, win. Lightning had already delayed the opening kickoff by more than an hour, and the weather radar was one big multicolored tapestry of dangerous storms when play was stopped for good at 11:05 p.m. Fifty minutes later, the NFL commissioner’s office determined the game would not resume. Exhibitions Chargers 33, Cardinals 31: Philip Rivers completed 20 of 29 passes for 282 yards and two touchdowns and Nate Kaeding kicked four field goals for San Diego at Glendale, Ariz. Kaeding booted the game-winner from 37 yard out with 2 seconds to go. ETC.: Arizona running back Edgerrin James was held out of the game. Marcel Shipp started in James’ place. San Diego running back LaDainian Tomlinson also was held out, missing his third straight game. Bears 31, 49ers 28: Rex Grossman passed for 211 yards and two touchdowns in the first half to lead the Bears at Chicago. ETC.: The Bears held Pro Bowl defensive tackle Tommie Harris out of the game. Harris, who suffered a season-ending hamstring injury last December, has been practicing but has not played during the preseason. Buccaneers 31, Dolphins 28: Jeff Garcia saved his best for last. Garcia played three series and he helped Tampa Bay beat the Dolphins in Miami with a 26-yard touchdown to Joey Galloway on his final pass. Colts 37, Lions 10: Peyton Manning appeared to be in midseason form, throwing three first-half touchdowns and helping the Super Bowl champion Colts to a rout of Detroit in Indianapolis. Jets 20, Giants 12: Kellen Clemens came off the bench in the second half and engineered two third-quarter touchdown drives against the Giants’ backups to lead the Jets to a victory at East Rutherford, N.J. Seahawks 30, Vikings 13: Matt Hasselbeck, playing for the first time since he had a single series in the exhibition opener two weeks ago, completed 12 of 17 passes for 129 yards and threw an interception in the Seahawks’ victory at Seattle. Texans 28, Cowboys 16: Matt Schaub threw second-quarter touchdown passes to Andre Johnson and Jacoby Jones to lead the Texans past Dallas at Houston. Browns 17, Broncos 16: Brady Quinn was efficient and effective for the second straight game for Cleveland, throwing a touchdown pass to Joshua Cribbs to break a 10-10 tie in the third quarter at Denver. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Though Falcons officials wouldn’t discuss their plans Saturday, the team is expected to follow Goodell’s suggestion and attempt to recoup the money from Vick. The process will remain private. “We’re not going to talk at all in any detail about any of that,” Falcons spokesman Reggie Roberts said Saturday night. The fact Vick remains on the team’s roster may be the best indication of the plans. For the team to make a legal claim to recover money under the CBA, Vick must remain on the roster, even though he is suspended. The Falcons already have some financial relief. The team will not have to pay Vick’s $6 million base salary this season, and they can add a player to replace Vick, since he is on the suspended list. The bad news for the team: Vick still counts about $8.5 million against the team’s salary cap for this season. From news services The Atlanta Falcons apparently are not through with Michael Vick yet – not when the team still hopes to recover millions of dollars it already paid the quarterback. Vick was suspended indefinitely without pay by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Friday, only hours after Vick acknowledged his guilt to some dogfighting charges. In announcing the suspension, Goodell also opened the way for the Falcons to attempt to recover $22 million of Vick’s signing bonus from the 10-year, $130 million contract he signed in 2004. “I have advised the Falcons that, with my decision today, they are no longer prohibited from acting and are now free to assert any claims or remedies available to them under the Collective Bargaining Agreement or your NFL Player Contract,” Goodell said Friday.
