    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.
