Offensive starters for the Patriots

By Mike Reiss

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Offensive starters for the New England Patriots in their preseason finale against the Giants:

LT: Jordan Devey
LG: Josh Kline
C: Bryan Stork
RG: Chris Barker
RT: Cameron Fleming
TE: Tim Wright
QB: Jimmy Garoppolo
RB: James White
WR: Aaron Dobson
WR: Josh Boyce
WR: Jeremy Gallon

Of note is that Wright, the tight end acquired from the Buccaneers, is in uniform and starting tonight. The Patriots are getting him acclimated quickly.

Also, this marks Stork's debut performance after he was hurt in the fifth practice of training camp. The fourth-round pick from Florida State was expected to compete for a starting role prior to his injury.

Dobson, the second-year receiver, is also making his debut.

So this is a night to get some recovering players their first action and also to take a closer look at the backups.
