Despite numerous reports for the last three weeks that Will Stein was good to go for that weekend's game, the junior quarterback has not played a down since injuring his throwing shoulder in the first half against Kentucky on Sept. 17.
Apparently that's going to change at Paul Brown Stadium on Saturday, as Stein is back to getting half of the QB reps at practice.
"Will for the first time this week is really back," offensive coordinator Shawn Watson told WDRB. "I would say he's probably 90 to 95 percent, from what I've seen of him this week. So, I would expect Will to get some time this week."
So what does this mean for Teddy Bridgewater? The freshman has started the last two weeks and has, for the most part, played well.
"Teddy's presented a tough situation...it's a good situation, because he's played so well," said Watson. We'll play both guys. Again, how much? We'll continue to see where Will's at. I'd like to get some time for him in the game."
Sounds like Bridgewater will more than likely make his third consecutive start, but that Stein will relieve him for at least a series fairly soon after that.
