  • Bengals' Brandon Allen: Makes one appearance in 2022

    Allen completed all three of his pass attempts for 22 yards in his lone appearance of the 2022 season, which came Week 9 in a 42-21 win over the Panthers.

    Allen's limited action reflected both Joe Burrow's relative health as well as the fact that the Bengals weren't often on the good or bad end of a blowout during the season. The 30-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent this spring, but Burrow has expressed hope that the Bengals will bring back Allen as his backup in 2023.

  • Bengals' Brandon Allen: Back with Cincinnati

    The Bengals re-signed Allen on Friday.

    Allen made the initial 53-man roster as the backup to Joe Burrow, but he was let go a day later to make room for a trio of waiver claims. However, as expected, Allen has returned to the Bengals after the team placed Tycen Anderson and Isaiah Prince on IR.

  • Brandon Allen: Released by Cincy

    The Bengals released Allen on Wednesday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

  • Bengals' Brandon Allen: Starting Sunday

    Allen is starting Sunday's preseason game against the Giants, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Allen started the Bengals' preseason opener against Arizona last weekend and completed all three of his pass attempts for 29 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions before sustaining a concussion. He should have more opportunities to prove himself during Sunday's preseason matchup.

  • Bengals' Brandon Allen: Returns to practice

    Allen (concussion) returned to practice Monday after suffering a concussion in Friday's loss to the Cardinals, Richard Skinner of WKRC-TV reports.

    Allen has cleared concussion protocol, putting him on track to start again when the Bengals visit the Giants on Sunday for their second preseason game. The veteran played just one series in Friday's first preseason action before being ruled out with a concussion. The expectation was that Allen would've played the entire first half in the contest. This very well could be the case Sunday, especially with starter Joe Burrow still recovering from an offseason appendix surgery.

  • Bengals' Brandon Allen: Concussion confirmed

    Allen was ruled out after suffering a concussion during Friday's preseason opener against Arizona.

    Allen was previously seen heading to Cincinnati's locker room after being evaluated for a concussion on the sidelines, and he'll likely have to miss extended time this preseason after this injury was later confirmed Friday night. As a result, Jake Browning stepped in as the Bengals' quarterback with starter Joe Burrow still recovering from an offseason appendix surgery. During Allen's presumptive absence, Browning will likely split snaps with undrafted signal-caller Drew Plitt this preseason.

  • Bengals' Brandon Allen: Being checked for concussion

    Allen exited Friday night's preseason game against Arizona to be evaluated for a possible concussion.

    Allen is questionable to return Friday after heading to the locker room with a potential concussion. The 29-year-old backup signal-caller has seen the majority of Cincinnati's first-team reps during practice while starter Joe Burrow is out after undergoing an appendectomy July 26. With Allen out, fourth-year quarterback Jake Browning should work as the Bengals' primary passer for much of Friday's game.

  • Bengals' Brandon Allen: Will start preseason opener

    Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said Allen will start Friday's preseason contest against the Cardinals and is projected to play the entire first half, Ben Baby of reports.

    This doesn't come as a surprise with Joe Burrow still sidelined following an appendectomy. Allen has been garnering the majority of first-team reps during training camp, while third-string Jake Browning operates as the backup. Those two will continue with those roles during the preseason opener, with Allen playing the first half and Browning playing the second.

  • Bengals' Brandon Allen: Seeing additional QB reps

    Allen received extra snaps under center during Wednesday's training camp sessions while starting quarterback Joe Burrow was sidelined due to surgery, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Allen and third-stringer Jake Browning were the only two quarterbacks to see action during Cincinnati's practice Wednesday. The two should continue to log additional reps with Burrow's availability uncertain after undergoing emergency surgery to remove his appendix Tuesday. It's unknown if the starter's status for Week 1 is under duress given the uncommon nature of this procedure, but Allen should be the next in line under center in the meantime.

  • Bengals' Brandon Allen: Re-ups with Cincinnati

    The Bengals re-signed Allen to a one-year contract Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Allen will return for a third straight season as the top backup to Joe Burrow (knee). The 29-year-old was reportedly Cincinnati's top choice for the No. 2 spot during the 2022 season, likely due to his familiarity with coach Zac Taylor's system.

  • Bengals' Brandon Allen: Scheduled for free agency

    Allen completed 17 of 34 pass attempts for 149 yards and two touchdowns across six appearances in 2021.

    Allen also logged seven carries for minus-1 yards and committed one fumble. The bulk of his NFL action this season came Week 18 at Cleveland, a spot start in which Cincinnati lost 21-16 to close out the regular season. Now scheduled for free agency after the conclusion of the postseason, Allen may have to search for his next backup role elsewhere.

  • Bengals' Brandon Allen: Mediocre in spot start

    Allen completed 15 of 29 passes for 136 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in the Bengals' 21-16 loss to the Browns on Sunday. He also rushed once for three yards and committed a fumble that was recovered by the offense.

    Allen drew the start for Joe Burrow (knee) and wasn't asked to do much. The 29-year-old was able to help Ja'Marr Chase set the rookie franchise receiving yardage record and also fired a touchdown throw to Chris Evans from four yards out with just over two minutes remaining in the contest. Burrow will be back under center when the Bengals begin the postseason with a wild-card game next weekend.
