While the Denver Broncos lick their wounds from defeat, their next opponent, the Cincinnati Bengals, have a question at quarterback this Sunday. Rookie Andy Dalton started the game and played into the second half before he was knocked out with a wrist injury. Bruce Gradkowski took over and led the Bengals to a victory over the Cleveland Browns.
Now, the NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports that Dalton's status for the game is in doubt, even though he has no significant damage to his wrist. We'll learn more about his status once he starts to practice.
In his debut, Dalton was 10-of-15 for 81 yards and a touchdown. Gradkowski relieved him and was 5-of-12 for 92 yards. His 41-yard strike to rookie A.J. Green in the fourth quarter put the Bengals up, 20-17.
