The Bengals have announced the signing of Drew Plitt to their practice squad in search of a new quarterback after Joe Burrow’s season-ending wrist injury. Plitt, who previously played with the team during the 2022 preseason, has not been on an NFL roster since being cut that summer. He spent the 2023 season playing for Arlington in the XFL, where he had a record of 63-of-100 for 668 yards, three touchdowns, and five interceptions.
With Jake Browning set to start for the Bengals and AJ McCarron in line for the No. 2 job, the addition of Plitt will add depth to their quarterback position. The team is also looking to bring back running back Chase Brown from injured reserve and has placed guard Jaxson Kirkland on the practice squad injured reserve.
The Bengals are taking proactive measures to ensure they have enough depth at key positions as they prepare for their next game. With Plitt’s experience in both college and professional football, he could prove valuable as they look to keep their offense running smoothly despite Burrow’s injury.
