Former Ball State quarterback Keith Wenning signs to New York Giants practice squad
Former Ball State quarterback Keith Wenning found a new home in the NFL Tuesday after he was signed to the New York Giants practice squad.
Wenning, who has been in the NFL since 2014, has played on both the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals practice squads. He advanced to the active roster for the Bengals in 2015 when starting quarterback Andy Dalton had a season ending thumb injury.
Wenning has been on the market since September after being waved by the Bengals. The Giants picked up Wenning after Ryan Nassib, third string quarterback, was placed on injured reserve last week. Wenning will be third in line after starting quarterback Eli Manning, and second string quarterback Josh Johnson.
Wenning graduated from Ball State in 2013. His multiple school records include: touchdown passes (91), passing yards (11,187), pass completions (1,012) and pass attempts (1,598).
