Bengals likely to add former Jets QB McElroy to practice squad

Greg McElroy will likely be signed to the Bengals practice squad soon. The 25-year-old quarterback was waived Saturday by the Jets and cleared waivers.

According to league sources, McElroy has a minor PCL injury and will visit the Bengals after reaching an injury settlement with the Jets. New York was interested in bringing him back later in the season.

McElroy played against Bengals starter Andy Dalton in high school and is highly cerebral. He could function as a conduit for Dalton on the sidelines.
