Reid: Chiefs starters will play 'close to a half' against Seahawks

Published Aug. 20, 2015 12:37 a.m. ET

Andy Reid isn't squandering a chance to gauge his team against one of the NFL's best.

The Chiefs head coach told reporters he plans on playing his starters "close to a half" against the visiting Seattle Seahawks.

It'll be a staunch test of teams on Friday. On offense, quarterback Alex Smith could ask for no better coverage team to test for big plays. 

Marshawn Lynch could be held out of the game, but if he plays, he'll test a Chiefs defense searching for answers to replace Dontari Poe.

Reid said the second team and third team will each get approximately one quarter's worth of snaps, respectively.
