    Bengals' Brandon Allen: Another preseason start

    Brandon Allen is expected to start for Joe Burrow during Friday's preseason game at Washington, Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.Coach Zac Taylor has held out Burrow for both of the Cincinnati Bengals' first two exhibitions, as the second-year signal-caller still is just nine months removed from suffering a torn ACL, torn MCL and other structural damage in his left knee. In preseason Week 1 in Tampa Bay, Allen completed seven of 10 passes for 77 yards and an interception while working the entire first half. He could be in line for a similar allotment of snaps before giving way to Kyle Shurmur after halftime.

    Bengals' Brandon Allen: Re-ups with Bengals

    Brandon Allen signed a one-year contract with the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.Allen started five games last season after Joe Burrow tore his ACL in Week 11. The 28-year-old Allen struggled but was serviceable, completing 63 percent of his passes for 925 yards (6.5 YPA), five touchdowns and four interceptions. Burrow has said he thinks that he'll be ready for Week 1. However, there's still a long road to recovery ahead. Allen would likely start under center if Burrow needs additional time.

    Bengals' Brandon Allen: Dreadful against Ravens

    Brandon Allen completed six of 21 passes for 48 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the Cincinnati Bengals' Week 17 loss to the Ravens.After putting together some valiant efforts filling in for Joe Burrow (knee), Allen fell flat in the season finale. He concluded the 2020 season having made four appearances and posting five touchdowns, three interceptions and 925 passing yards. Allen was playing the campaign on a one-year deal and will enter the offseason as an unrestricted free agent. Given the uncertain timeline for Burrow, the Bengals could opt to re-sign Allen to an affordable short-term deal.

    Bengals' Brandon Allen: Racks up 371 yards

    Brandon Allen completed 27 of 39 pass attempts for 371 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 16 against the Texans.After being forced to miss the team's Week 15 matchup against the Steelers, Allen returned to action to lead Cincinnati to its second consecutive win. He worked efficiently and spread passes around, targeting four different receivers at least six times. Allen showed particular rapport with Tee Higgins, connecting with him for long plays of 30, 22 and 20 yards -- the last of which went for a touchdown. Allen is likely to draw another start to close the season in Week 17 against the Ravens.

    Bengals' Brandon Allen: Listed as active Sunday

    Brandon Allen (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Texans, Geoff Hobson of the Cincinnati Bengals' official site reports.Though coach Zac Taylor hasn't named a starting QB for the contest, Hobson indicates that "indications throughout the week have been that Allen" will get the nod after missing the team's Week 15 win over the Steelers. Also, as Hobson points out, Allen "didn't appear on Friday's game status report and remained listed as the No. 1 quarterback in front of Ryan Finley." Either way, Allen's not a high-percentage lineup option for those in the fantasy playoffs, and it doesn't help that the Bengals will be without top pass catcher Tyler Boyd (concussion) in Week 16.

    Bengals' Brandon Allen: Practices fully Thursday

    Brandon Allen (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Ben Baby of reports.Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said earlier Thursday he expected Allen to be available for Sunday's game in Houston, and the quarterback's ability to take every rep at Thursday's practice seemingly backs up that notion. Taylor hasn't formally announced a Week 16 starting quarterback, but Allen is expected to take back the role from Ryan Finley, who led the Bengals to an upset win over the Steelers on Monday but threw for just 89 yards in the contest.

    Coach Zac Taylor indicated Thursday that Brandon Allen (knee) is on track to be available for the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday against the Texans "if we need him," Ben Baby of reports.While Taylor added that at this time he's not inclined to name a starting QB for Week 16, Baby anticipates that Allen -- who continued to practice Thursday -- will draw the assignment over Ryan Finley.

    Bengals' Brandon Allen: Logs limited practice

    Brandon Allen (knee) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.Allen's return to limited activity is a step in the right direction, but Ben Baby of noted earlier Wednesday that head coach Zac Taylor said the team plans to see how the quarterback's knee responds over the next couple of days before determining if he'll be available for Sunday's game against the Texans. Even if Allen gains clearance to play, he could shift into a backup role after Ryan Finley guided the Cincinnati Bengals to an upset win over the Steelers on Monday while Allen was sidelined.

    Bengals' Brandon Allen: Knee being monitored

    Head coach Zac Taylor said Wednesday that Brandon Allen (knee) will be evaluated over the next few days before a decision on the Cincinnati Bengals' Week 16 starting quarterback is made, Ben Baby of reports.While Allen was sidelined for Monday's win over the Steelers, Ryan Finley drew the start and served as a game managing, passing for only 89 yards and a touchdown in the upset victory. The outing didn't necessarily boost Finley's job security, so Allen -- if healthy -- could have a shot at reclaiming the starting role Sunday against Houston. However, Allen will almost certainly need to resume practicing in some capacity Thursday and Friday to merit consideration for the starting nod.

    Bengals' Brandon Allen: Out Monday

    Brandon Allen (knee) will not play Monday against the Steelers, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.Allen never managed to practice this week, so the end result isn't exactly shocking. As a result, Ryan Finley will enter as the starter for the first time this season. In three starts last year, the 25-year-old posted an unassuming 474 passing yards across 106 attempts (47.1 completion percentage) while throwing two touchdowns as well as two interceptions.
