CINCINNATI (AP) The Bengals signed free-agent quarterback Tyler Wilson on Saturday, two days after second-string quarterback Jason Campbell bruised his passing elbow.

The Bengals needed someone to throw in training camp and the preseason games because rookie AJ McCarron has been sidelined by a sore passing shoulder. Andy Dalton played briefly in the preseason opener against the Chiefs and is expected to get a lot more time next Saturday against the Jets at Paul Brown Stadium.

Wilson was Oakland's fourth-round pick in 2013, when he was on the practice squad most of the season. Tennessee signed him late off the Raiders' practice squad late in the season and waived him last week.
