With so many players going down with injuries in 2017, there's a long list of notable players making their return to the field in Week 1 of 2018. We'll keep track of how some of these players do, and update this post throughout the day.

Andrew Luck, QB, Colts

Colts vs. Bengals, 1 p.m. ET

Luck finished 39-for-53 with 319 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. He threw the interception on his second pass attempt of the game, but he rebounded and started 11-for-15 for 112 yards and a touchdown to Eric Ebron. The Colts lost 34-23.

Deshaun Watson, QB, Texans

Texans at Patriots, 1 p.m. ET

Watson finished 17-for-35 with 176 yards, a touchdown and an interception. He rushed eight times for an additional 40 yards. The Texans fell behind early, with Watson starting 1-for-6 for three yards, and spent much of the game trying to claw back into it. They cut it to 7 points and his Hail Mary attempt on the final play fell short of the end zone.

Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Giants

Giants vs. Jaguars, 1 p.m. ET

Beckham finished with 11 catches for 111 yards and one rush that lost a yard in a loss to the Jaguars.

Dalvin Cook, RB, Vikings

Vikings at 49ers, 1 p.m. ET

Dalvin Cook's first five carries went for just seven yards. He then had a powerful run, breaking tackles for a first down, but was stripped at the end of the play and the 49ers recovered. He finished with 16 carries for 40 yards and six catches for 55 yards in a win.

J.J. Watt, DE, Texans

​Texans at Patriots, 1 p.m. ET

Watt had a relatively quiet day, with three tackles, two solo tackles and two hits on Tom Brady, but no sacks or tackles for loss.

Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers
