He is the clear cut backup quarterback behind Andy Dalton, but Cincinnati’s coaching staff wants more consistency from former Alabama standout AJ McCarron.
A shoulder injury kept him from playing last season, and he hasn’t had much practice since Alabama’s 2014 Sugar Bowl game. He endured a rough outing Sunday in day three of training camp.
According to Cincinnati.com., Bengals’ offensive coordinator Hue Jackson wants McCarron to run the offense the way Cincinnati wants him too. McCarron was off target on numerous throws Sunday; however, he did connect on a pass to former Auburn tight C.J. Uzomah.
