    Cowboys Sitting Starters vs Seattle, QB Will Grier to Play Heavily

    The will continue to protect their starters in the , announcing yesterday that most will not suit for Friday's game against Seattle. But we can expect to see a lot of backup QB candidate Will Grier, who will reportedly get the majority of the snaps versus the Seahawks.

    made the team's plans clear in a media session yesterday. He said the first-team and would get a lot of work in practice this week but that Friday night would be more for evaluating the backups and position battles throughout the roster.

    Even diehard fans have to be a little disappointed that we won't see , Dak Prescott, and other stars at all during the preseason. But unlike the casuals, we can find some comfort in our own glimpses of the guys fighting for their spots on the or to even make the .

    We can be excited to see more from guys like , , , and other standouts from the last two games. Hopefully, get some more chances to kick and earn trust before the game start counting.

    Few of those contenders have more intrigue right now than Will Grier. After outclassing in last week's game in Los Angeles, Grier will supposedly get all the work he can handle this Friday as Dallas tries to decide who their backup QB will be in 2022.

    It makes sense to load up the reps on Grier. Dallas knows who Cooper Rush is after five seasons, while last week was their only firsthand look at Will in for a live game.

    Of course, any evaluation of Grier's performance comes with the caveat that he won't be protected by the starting or throwing to or . But skilled coaches can see how traits shown in preseason and practice would translate to the real games, such as how Rush looked against the Vikings last year.

    Even without the starters, there will clearly be plenty to watch for this Friday night.
