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.
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.
