Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is going to be sidelined for a bit after having his appendix removed, so the team moved to bolster the position on Wednesday.
The team announced the signing of Drew Plitt to the 90-man roster. He joins Brandon Allen and Jake Browning on the depth chart behind Burrow. Cornerback John Brannon was waived in a corresponding move.
Plitt played 46 games at Ball State over the last five seasons. He is from a suburb of Cincinnati and previously tried out for the Bengals.
