The Cincinnati Bengals will start Brandon Allen at quarterback in place of the injured Joe Burrow Sunday against the New York Giants, according to a report from NFL Network's Mike Garofolo.

Allen was on the Bengals' practice squad until he replaced Burrow on the active roster. Allen will start over second-year QB Ryan Finley, who replaced Burrow against the Washington Football Team.

In three starts for the Denver Broncos last season, the 28-year-old Allen threw for 515 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions.

Prior to his time with the Broncos, Allen spent two seasons with the Los Angeles Rams.
