Bengals Release Trevor Siemian

Tuesday, August 29, 11:16 AM

The Cincinnati Bengals released quarterback Trevor Siemian on Tuesday after the team officially named Jake Browning as the backup to starter Joe Burrow. Siemian lost the backup QB battle to Browning by completing only 55.4 percent of his pass attempts during the preseason for 316 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. The veteran should be able to latch on with another team looking for an experienced backup option. Behind Browning in Cincinnati, the Bengals also have Reid Sinnett as their No. 3. The 31-year-old Siemian was a seventh-round pick by the Denver Broncos in 2015 out of Northwestern and spent the first three years of his career in Denver before bouncing around to New York, New Orleans and Chicago.

Joe Burrow Will Be Game-Time Decision Monday

Sunday, September 24, 10:16 AM

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (calf) is expected to be a game-time decision for Week 3 versus the Los Angeles Rams. According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Burrow's pre-game workout will decide whether or not he suits up. His status remains a true question mark, but given that Burrow doesn't play until Monday, it would be wise for fantasy managers to make backup plans. Pulling Burrow, the QB32 overall in fantasy football, from lineups on Sunday allows for managers to find his replacement within a larger list of candidates. On the other hand, waiting until Monday night comes with risk, because if he's ruled out, managers will have to pivot to Matthew Stafford or Baker Mayfield.
