Get ready, Browns fans! At long last, it's the moment we've all been waiting for since January: the first preseason game of the 2011 season.

That also means it's time for our first in-game live blog of 2011. I'll be posting updates here periodically throughout the game as things unfold on the field between the Cleveland Browns (0-0) and the Green Bay Packers (0-0). 

Browns starters will play one quarter tonight, so we'll have 15 minutes to get our first glimpse of the season at Colt McCoy, Peyton Hillis and the other stars we've missed so much this offseason.

Second stringers will get the next two quarters, and the last quarter will go to those players further down the depth chart who need to impress tonight in order to make the team. 

Notable injured players who won't see action tonight are WR Mohamed Massaquoi and RB Montario Hardesty. LB Chris Gocong, S Eric Hagg and S Usama Young all suffered minor injuries at practice this week and may not play tonight, though there's been no official word on it yet. 

Check back here for live updates throughout the game as we ring in the start of the 2011 football season and track all the action as it happens. Go Browns!
