It will be at least six weeks before the McCarron will make the NFL pay for him being a low draft pick. I don’t think there is anything wrong with him, but this is a good way to avoid cutting him.
Bengals place QB AJ McCarron on reserve/NFI list. Can't practice for next six weeks. NFI = Injury suffered in college or outside football.
