Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports The end of an era. The Cincinnati Bengals have announced that Jeff Driskel has been waived from the injured reserve and received an injury settlement. He suffered what was initially believed to be a season-ending hamstring injury in the preseason. Driskel joined the Bengals when he was waived by the 49ers after the team drafted him out of Louisiana Tech in the sixth-round of the 2016 NFL draft. He has spent the past two offseasons with the Bengals. Last year, he beat out Matt Barkley for the backup job behind Andy Dalton. In 2018, he got his first shot to...

Should Jake Dolegala make the Bengals’ final 53-man roster?

Should Jake Dolegala make the Bengals’ final 53-man roster?

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports Has the undrafted rookie shown enough in the preseason to care out a spot on the team’s final 2019 roster? The Cincinnati Bengals have some very tough decisions to make this coming weekend. As the team wrapped up its final preseason game of 2019, it appears another quandary has reared its head in the quarterback position group. Rookie Ryan Finley has had a great preseason and has taken a stranglehold on the backup quarterback spot behind starter Andy Dalton. The performances of both Finley and Jake Dolegala has seemingly made Jeff Driskel expendable. Maybe...

OPEN THREAD: Bengals vs. Colts first half

OPEN THREAD: Bengals vs. Colts first half

One more tuneup before the real thing. The Bengals wrap up preseason play tonight when the Colts invade Paul Brown Stadium. This will be a game dominated by backups and guys looking to secure their spot on the 53-man roster. We’ll likely see a lot of Ryan Finley and Jake Dolegala at quarterback tonight, as Andy Dalton won’t play much, if it all, while Jeff Driskel is sitting out again due to injury. We’ll also see guys like Josh Malone, Andrew Brown, Deshaun Davis, Tony McRae, Mason Schreck and Brandon Wilson fight to secure their spots on the 53-man roster or risk being waived...

Bengals rookie report: Jake Dolegala’s delightful debut

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports No Jeff Driskel? No problem. Week 3 of the preseason is when the starters are supposed to be making headlines. It’s the game where they usually play about one half of football and we start seeing what each side of the ball is capable of. And to a degree, we did see this with the Bengals on Thursday night. Andy Dalton’s 26-yard touchdown lob to C.J. Uzomah and Carl Lawson’s strip sack represent the promise of each starting unit. But as it’s been for this preseason, the rookies have been making too much noise for us to ignore. Week 3 against the Giants...
