Bengals vs Bucs Preview

Those hoping to get a glimpse of Tom Brady in the first preseason game won’t be disappointed. Brady will take snaps with the first team, although Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians was mum about how long the 44-year-old quarterback will be on the field. We’re likely to get a heavy dose of rookie QB Kyle Trask as a result.

Arians likes what he has seen from Trask so far. “Really good. He was outstanding in every snap he had today,” the Bucs coach said after Wednesday’s practice. “Got the ball out of his hands. The last one was probably his only – it wasn’t even a bad throw, there wasn’t anybody open. Fundamentally, he’s really getting better, and I like where he’s at.”

Bucs running back Ke’Shawn Vaughn will be a key player to watch, as he will be battling for a spot on the roster against C.J. Prosise and Troymaine Pope.

On the other side, we already know we won’t be seeing last year’s No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow, as Bengals head coach Zac Taylor has confirmed that Burrow, center Trey Hopkins, offensive tackle Fred Johnson and defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi will not play in this game, via Paul Dehner of The Athletic.

Taylor also discussed his plans for what will be his first preseason game as a head coach, after the preseason was canceled last year. Burrow’s backup, quarterback Brandon Allen, will get the bulk of the snaps under center and the team’s top two rushers, Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine, will play, but will be limited.

“You want to put together a good drive with the ones. If you can do that then get some other guys some work. Brandon will play a little bit longer than maybe some other guys that come out first just to get him some more game action,” Taylor said, per the team’s official website. “You have a lot interior competition but not a lot of bodies on the outside. Some guys are going to get some really good work. (Tackles) Isaiah Prince and Gunnar Vogel, those guys will get their fair share of reps.”

One player to watch for the Bengals will be fifth-overall pick Ja’Marr Chase, who has been rumored to be off to a slow start. How well the rookie performs in this and the following two preseason contests could be key to how much playing time he gets when the regular season rolls around.
