Bengals QB Andy Dalton's Arm Injury Isn't Serious
In a week in which the Bengals were already dealing with one major injury to a starter, the last thing anyone wanted to see was what happened on their sixth offensive play of Thursday nightís preseason finale against the Colts.
The good news out of this one is that Andy Dalton appears fine after taking a hit from Colts defensive end Robert Mathis. The original report was a bruised right arm.
The fact that Dalton did not go immediately to the locker room and later was talking to teammates was an encouraging sign. Coach Marvin Lewis said at halftime that had this been a regular-season game, Dalton would have returned to the game.
Said Dalton: ďIím good, no problem at all. I just took a hit on the arm, and my hand got feeling a little numb, sort of like getting hit on your funny bone. But itís fine now. There was just no point in taking any more snaps in this particular game.Ē
