<div class="byline"><b>By Calvin Silvers <\/b>St. Joseph News-Press<\/div>\nThe Kansas City Chiefs won\u2019t be showing everything in Saturday\u2019s preseason opener in Chicago.\n\nBut coach Andy Reid isn\u2019t shy about playing his starters \u2013 at least for a little while \u2013 either.\n\nThe preseason is a great time for rookies and second-string players to showcase their skill sets before a final 53-man roster is officially put together. The coach said all four quarterbacks, including Patrick Mahomes, will get a quarter each.\n\nOn the defensive side, new safety Justin Reid will be looked upon as a leader of the secondary after the departure of 10-year veteran Tyrann Mathieu, and he\u2019ll get his first chance to show that at noon Saturday against the Bears.\n\nWhile the team won\u2019t dive too deep into the playbook, Reid is ready to go out and hit.\n\n\u201cObviously in preseason we\u2019re not going to be exposing our whole deck of cards,\u201d said Justin Reid, who had 41 solo tackles and two interceptions with the Houston Texans last season. \u201cBut guys are excited to play and I\u2019m excited to be able to line up against somebody wearing a different color jersey than I am for once.\u201d\n\nWith the Chiefs taking seven defensive players in this year\u2019s draft, there\u2019s a lot of potential, but not a lot of room for error. While the rookies have looked presentable in practice, the preseason is where we\u2019ll see who can handle the pressure.\n\n\u201cThings are going to unfold themselves. As we start getting into the preseason games, we start having some live contact and start seeing how guys perform under pressure,\u201d Justin Reid said. \u201cBut up to this point, they\u2019ve been doing excellent.\u201d\n\nAndy Reid is anxious to see his players compete for roster spots.\n\n\u201cThere\u2019s a balance there of letting the 1\u2019s get a little bit of work, and the guys are going to play in the game and still have the competition at certain positions,\u201d Reid said. \u201cThen most of all, get the young guys a look.\u201d\n\nMahomes knows the importance of playing, even for just a preseason quarter.\n\n\u201cOnce you get hit one time, you kind of see what it is like to get hit again as a quarterback. I feel like after that, you\u2019re good to go,\u201d Mahomes said. \u201cIt\u2019ll be good to get in there with the new group of receivers that we have, all the running backs and kind of show how we do it in the game.\u201d\n\nAndy Reid made it clear that every active person on the roster would get a chance to play on Saturday. While the overall goal is to finalize the depth chart, each individual sees a different advantage.\n\n\u201cI think it\u2019s good to kind of get the juices going, get yourself out there and even if it\u2019s a limited amount of plays,\u201d Andy Reid said. \u201cPrepare yourself, prepare yourself mentally to go play.\u201d\n\n\u201cJust getting in rhythm,\u201d Mahomes said. \u201cIt\u2019s getting in the game and seeing when the clock\u2019s running and everything, the game kind of speeds up.\u201d\n\n\u201cIt\u2019s barebones football, we know what you\u2019re going to do, you know what we\u2019re going to do,\u201d Justin Reid said. \u201cLet\u2019s see what your true skill set is before we get into the game plan.\u201d\n\nThe first wave of roster cuts \u2013 from 90 to 85 players \u2013 is scheduled for Tuesday.
