  • Brandon Allen is the Bengals’ backup quarterback.
  • The Bengals only have two quarterbacks on their active roster.

Joe Burrow has been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL by several metrics in 2022. So if he were to miss a game, the Bengals’ NFL odds of winning would potentially be much worse.

Who Is the Cincinnati Bengals’ Backup Quarterback?

Brandon Allen is the Bengals’ backup quarterback.

Allen was selected in the sixth round out of Arkansas by the Jaguars in the 2016 NFL Draft. He played his first game in 2019 for the Broncos before going to the Bengals in 2020. Before 2022, he played in 14 games and started nine.

Who Is the Cincinnati Bengals’ Third-String Quarterback?

The Bengals do not have a third quarterback on their active roster, but they do have Jake Browning on their practice squad.

Browning was an undrafted free agent out of Washington in 2019 and was initially picked up by the Vikings. He’s been on the Bengals’ practice squad in 2021 and 2022.

Who Is the Cincinnati Bengals’ Emergency Quarterback?

It is unclear who the Bengals’ emergency quarterback would be if Joe Burrow and Brandon Allen were to miss time. However, wide receiver Tyler Boyd has thrown a pass for the Bengals in each of the last three seasons.

Jake Browning could see some playing time considering his experience with the team, but that could only be after he’s been elevated to the active roster after a game if Burrow and Allen are injured.
