The starting rotation of the Cleveland Browns has already been settled.
They already know that Pro Bowl quarterback Deshaun Watson is suspended for 11 games in violation of the league’s conduct policy.
Taking his place is Jacoby Brissett, who has experience starting with the Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins.
Aside from Brissett, the other projected starters will be playing, as shared by ESPN’s Jake Trotter.

He tweeted, “QB Jacoby Brissett and most of the starters will play Saturday night vs. Chicago, per Kevin Stefanski.”
Given that it’s in the preseason, the starters may play for a sequence or two before checking out of the game.
After Nick Harris went down with a season-ending injury, the Browns will have to deal with some adjustments in their offensive line.
Tight end David Njoku may also see action after getting a four-year, $54.7 million contract extension.

Ward agreed to a five-year, $100.5 million extension from the Browns this offseason.
After going against the Bears, the Browns will face Baker Mayfield and the Carolina Panthers in Week 1 of the 2022 NFL season.
