    Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron (wrist) and TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) were full participants in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

    Huddle Up: Both should be good to go Sunday against a Ravens' defense which has struggled for most of the season but is coming off an impressive win over the Steelers.

    Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron (wrist) is dealing with a significant left wrist sprain, according to a source. McCarron still intends to play in Week 17 against the Baltimore Ravens, though, since the injury is to his non-throwing hand. However, he won't know until later this week.

    Huddle Up: Keep an eye on his practice status this week, but with Andy Dalton still unavailable, the only other QB on the Cincy roster is Keith Wenning.

    Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron will start in Week 16 against the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

    Huddle Up: Dalton was never really expected to play in Week 16, so this doesn't come as much of a surprise. McCarron shouldn't be anywhere near a fantasy lineup going up against the tough Broncos' pass defense.

    Cincinnati Bengals QB A.J. McCarron will receive the start in Week 15 against the San Francisco 49ers. He'll be trying to become the first Alabama quarterback to win an NFL start since 1987, when Jeff Rutledge beat the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: With Andy Dalton out for the foreseeable future, McCarron is the Bengals starter. He has a great matchup against the 49ers but McCarron is nothing more than a QB2 for fantasy purposes.

    Cincinnati Bengals QB A.J. McCarron led a pair of scoring drives with the first-team offense during a scrimmage Saturday, Aug. 8. 'I thought he was even better than last night,' offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said. 'Every time he completed a ball his confidence skyrocketed. It's a good opportunity for him to continue to grow.'

    Huddle Up: Starter Andy Dalton has been better in fantasy than reality the last few seasons, and now Cincy finally appears to have another QB who's actually a threat to take over if Dalton goes through a stretch of struggles.

    Cincinnati Bengals backup QB A.J. McCarron (shoulder), who spent almost all of his rookie season in 2014 on the non-football injury list with a shoulder injury from college, plans to push QB Andy Dalton hard for the starting job in training camp this summer. 'Andy's our starter. I know that. I love Andy to death. But I want to make him better every way that I can,' McCarron said. The coaches said McCarron looks to be throwing pain-free this offseason. He spent the offseason training with quarterbacks coaches David Morris and Tom House, and House changed some of McCarron's mechanics to help him throw tighter with more compact body control.

    Huddle Up: There's more competition up and down the Cincy QB depth chart with Terrelle Pryor recently joining McCarron, Dalton and Josh Johnson but realistically it's going to take a near-full meltdown or an injury to knock Dalton out of the starting spot.
