Andy Dalton will undergo further evaluation on thumb

AP

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said initial tests don’t show a long-term issue with Andy Dalton‘s thumb, Katherine Terrell of ESPN reports.

But Lewis added that Dalton will undergo more medical tests to determine the severity.

In other words, the Bengals know nothing at this point about their quarterback’s availability for next week or beyond.

Dalton left the game after the team’s first series of the second half. He did not return.

Dalton injured his right thumb after Billy Price‘s errant snap sailed over Dalton’s head. Dalton hurt his thumb when he tried to recover the ball and got tangled with Emmanuel Ogbah.

Jeff Driskel went 17-of-29 for 155 yards with a touchdown after replacing Dalton, who was 10-of-17 for 100 yards with a touchdown and an interception. The Browns won 35-20.

  1. I hope for the sake off A.J. Green that this is the end of the Lewis / Dalton reign in Cincinnati. No thanks to Lewis 2.0 Hue as well.

  2. “Dalton hurt his thumb when he tried to recover the ball and got tangled with Emmanuel Ogbah.”

    Uhh… from the picture, it looks like he “got tangled” with the 10 yd line, then the ground?

  3. Lewis’ last two first round picks are John Ross and Billy Price. One gets hurt every time he catches the ball which is rare, the other one is a center that can’t snap the ball and gets his quarterback killed when he happens to get into a game which also is rare. Reason number 132 to fire Marvin now!

  4. Tired of hearing that we have to surround Andy with great players. If he’s that dang average then move on from him. But then again until Marvin is gone it doesn’t matter anyway.
