AJ McCarron: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Head coach Marvin Lewis confirmed Monday that the Bengals are preparing McCarron to start Saturday's playoff opener against the Steelers, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

McCarron fared well in four starts down the stretch for Andy Dalton, completing 66 percent (76 of 115) of his passes for 832 yards, six touchdowns, and two interceptions. In fact, McCarron avoided throwing a pick in each of the final three games of that run, a span of 83 throws, though he averaged just 6.65 yards per attempt. Slated to see a hand specialist about his broken thumb Monday, Dalton could be on the verge of removing his cast with the aim of building up range of motion in his right hand, but the Bengals are clearly comfortable with the notion of McCarron starting a playoff game, assuming Dalton is unable to return Saturday.
McCarron (wrist) completed 17 of 27 passes for 160 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 24-16 win over the Ravens. He also rushed three times for two yards and was sacked three times for a loss of 13 yards.

McCarron completed 22-of-35 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown and nearly knocked off the Broncos on the road Monday, but he injured his left wrist on the final play of the contest, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' website reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

McCarron is not sure of the severity of his injury, but he was not immediately confident that he would be ready to go in Week 17. The Bengals' medical staff will take a closer look at McCarron's wrist Tuesday due to determine the extent of his setback. Regular starter Andy Dalton (thumb) is unlikely to be ready for Week 17, so if McCarron is somehow unable to go as well, the Bengals may be forced to turn to third-stringer Keith Wenning in their regular season finale.

2014

McCarron joins the Bengals after a hugely successful four-year college career at Alabama. With Andy Dalton undoubtedly Cincinnati's starting quarterback this season, McCarron will hope to learn from veteran second-stringer Jason Campbell as he transitions to the NFL.
