NFL preseason 2022: Who’s playing starters in Week 1?

NFL preseason 2022: Who’s playing starters in Week 1?
With NFL teams increasingly opting against playing their starters significant time in the preseason, Yahoo Sports will do our best to keep you updated with which big names you’ll actually be able to watch each week.

Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs starters will play one quarter, Bears will get 15-20 plays
The Kansas City Chiefs’ starters will play the entire first quarter against the Chicago Bears on Saturday. Patrick Mahomes and the new-look Chiefs offense, which no longer features Tyreek Hill, will go to work against a Bears defense that added cornerback Kyler Gordon and safety Jaquan Brisker in the second round of the 2022 NFL draft (1 p.m. ET, NFL Network).

The Bears will also give their starters some run during their first preseason game. Justin Fields and the Bears’ starters will play roughly “15-20 plays,” per new head coach Matt Eberflus.

Mitch Trubisky to start for Steelers
Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin told reporters Mitch Trubisky will start at quarterback against the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday (7 p.m. ET, NFL Network).

Commanders will play starters ’15-20 snaps’
Washington head coach Ron Rivera told reporters his starters will play “15-20 snaps” against the Carolina Panthers on Saturday (1 p.m. ET, local TV).

Matt Ryan will play first quarter for Colts
According to Indianapolis head coach Frank Reich, new quarterback Matt Ryan will play the first quarter against the Buffalo Bills on Saturday (4 p.m. ET, NFL Network).

Josh Allen won’t play for Bills
Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott told reporters his star quarterback won’t play Saturday against the Indianapolis Colts (4 p.m. ET, NFL Network).

Jaguars starters expected to play
Head coach Doug Pederson said he expects Trevor Lawrence, Travis Etienne and the other Jaguars starters to play “a bit” against the Cleveland Browns on Friday (7 p.m. ET, local TV).

Browns plan to start Deshaun Watson
Barring the NFL’s impending suspension appeal decision, Cleveland has listed Watson as its starter for Friday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars (7 p.m. ET, local TV).

The NFL preseason is back, and that means hundreds of jobs are on the line across the league.

Although most teams only play three preseason contests, the Las Vegas Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars — last week’s Hall of Fame Game participants — suit up for four games.

We’ve already seen quite a bit of movement around the league prior to this week’s 16 contests, half of which will air live on NFL Network, starting with Thursday’s Giants-Patriots tilt (7 p.m. ET).

Here’s one thing to watch for from all 32 teams in Week 1 of the NFL preseason.

Brian Daboll’s Giants have struggled offensively early in camp in what appears to be a pivotal year for Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley and others. Daboll said he anticipated “all of our guys” playing against New England, but we’ll be particularly interested to see if 2021 first-round WR Kadarius Toney can make some noise after a trying rookie season. How will Daboll and the Giants use Toney and his array of video-game moves? Can he earn a major role on offense this season? … Mac Jones and most of the Patriots’ starters won’t play Thursday night, but the team’s new-look offense will still be dissected in what likely will be our first chance to see how Matt Patricia calls plays. DeVante Parker has had some moments in camp, but we might get longer looks from wideouts such as 2021 seventh-rounder Tre Nixon and 2022 second-rounder Tyquan Thornton. There is some quiet concern over the Patriots’ offense; it needs all the playmakers it can find.

The first full week of preseason action is finally here. With plenty of roster spots, rookie expectations and quarterback battles to sort out, here’s everything you need to know before Week 1 kicks off.

GIANTS STORYLINE: A new head coach in New York (Brian Daboll) means you’ll likely see most of the regular-season starters see some action in this game to continue getting familiar with new systems. It’s a make-or-break year for quarterback Daniel Jones (71.6 passing grade last season), and how confident he looks in the new offense will be paramount.

PATRIOTS STORYLINE: Don’t expect many of the Patriots’ top starters in this game. Where quarterback Mac Jones’ spot isn’t in question, the order of his passing weapons is. No receiver on the team recorded a 75.0-plus receiving grade last season.

TITANS STORYLINE: The Titans made a big shift to their roster when they traded star wide receiver A.J. Brown to the Eagles during night one of the 2022 NFL Draft. They replaced him with first-round pick Treylon Burks later in the evening. The biggest storyline for the team is how quickly Burks can be a reliable weapon in the passing game.

RAVENS STORYLINE: The Ravens traded one of their top passing options, Marquise Brown, to the Arizona Cardinals this past offseason. The question is now who will pick up the slack. Can Rashod Bateman be that go-to player in the receiver room? And beyond him, what will be the roles and emphasis of players such as Devin Duvernay, James Proche and Tylan Wallace?
