Bray has been third on the depth chart at quarterback behind Alex Smith and Patrick Mahomes all season, and that's unlikely to change barring an injury to one of the two players. As a result, look for Bray to remain a fixture on the inactive list until further notice.
Bray finished just 2-of-5 for 23 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's game against the Bengals.
Bray didn't throw his first pass until midway through the third quarter in the contest, but clearly worked ahead of Joel Stave and behind Patrick Mahomes. The fifth-year signal-caller's status with the team likely hinges on whether or not the Chiefs keep a third quarterback. He's no longer eligible for the practice squad, so Bray will have to search for a job elsewhere if he doesn't make the cut.
Bray completed five of eight passes for 63 yards and an interception during the Chiefs' preseason opener against the 49ers, while Patrick Mahomes outplayed him with seven completions on nine pass attempts for 49 yards and a score. Alex Smith and the first team will play the first half Saturday, with Mahomes stepping in for the third quarter. This may indicate the rookie having surpassed Bray in the battle for the backup job behind Smith.
Bray is currently one spot ahead of 10th overall pick Pat Mahomes in the pecking order at quarterback, while veteran Alex Smith is slated to start and play throughout the entire first quarter Friday. Bray has yet to see regular season action in the NFL, however, so Mahomes' upside figures to eventually allow for the rookie to surpass Bray on the depth chart.
