QB - CIN
This Week Outlook
Brandon Allen completed all three of his passes for 22 yards in a 42-21 win over the Panthers in Week 9.
Allen entered the game for Joe Burrow with 3:42 left in the third quarter and Cincy up 42-7. It was the first time the veteran signal-caller has seen the field in 2022. The Bengals' backup QB will be on bye in Week 10 before taking on the Steelers in Week 11.
Brandon Allen completed 14 of his 20 pass attempts for 105 yards in a 25-22 preseason loss to the Giants on Sunday.
Allen was evaluated for a concussion last week in the preseason opener but he cleared protocol and was able to start against the Giants on Sunday. The veteran signal-caller is competing to open the year as the primary backup to Joe Burrow.
Bengals QB Brandon Allen left Friday's preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals and is being evaluated for a concussion.
Allen got the starting nod in the Bengals’ preseason opener and was projected to play the entire first half before having to exit early in the second quarter to be evaluated for a concussion. Stay tuned as more information becomes available, but this likely means added snaps for third-string QB Jake Browning.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Brandon Allen completed 15-of-29 passes for 136 yards and a touchdown in a 21-16 loss to the Browns in Week 18.
Allen got the spot start with Joe Burrow ruled out earlier in the week to rest his knee. Allen predictably struggled without Tee Higgins and Joe Mixon. Look for Allen to return to his normal reserve role when the playoffs kick off next week.
Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen has been re-signed to a one-year deal with his current team, as reported by NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
Allen earned five starts in 2020 following Joe Burrow's ACL tear, throwing for 925 yards and five touchdowns with a 1-4 record in that span. He will continue to play a back-up role to Burrow in Cincinnati but is familiar with the system ran by head coach Zac Taylor. Therefore, Allen provides insurance and experience should the Bengals fail to improve their bottom-tier offensive line this offseason.
