The Cincinnati Bengals signed a veteran quarterback to their 53-man roster ahead of their matchup with the Jackson’s Jaguars on Monday Night Football. The 5-6 Bengals need to upset the Jaguars if they want to keep any hope alive of staying in the AFC Wild Card race.
The Bengals’ furious fall winning streak was hampered when they lost Joe Burrow for the season due to an injury he suffered against the Baltimore Ravens. Backup quarterback Jake Browning led the Bengals offense to just ten points in his start against the Pittsburgh Steelers last week.
Browning was 19/27, passing for 227 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Bengals’ 16-10 loss to the Steelers. The Bengals made a roster move at quarterback Monday to give the team veteran depth at quarterback.

According to Ian Rapoport with the NFL Network, quarterback AJ McCarron was signed to the Bengals 53-man roster from the practice squad.
The #Bengals placed CB Cam Taylor-Britt (ankle) on injured reserve, and he can't return until Week 17. They also signed QB AJ McCarron from the practice squad to the active roster.

The Bengals signed McCarron to the practice squad in September when Burrow was unstable with his calf injury. The 33-year-old quarterback has not played in an NFL game since he was with the Houston Texans during the 2020 season.
