Andy Dalton completed 21-of-31 passes for 206 yards and one interception in the Bengals' Week 3 loss to the Broncos.
He saved his fantasy day from being a true clunker with 40 rushing yards on six scrambles. Dalton took four sacks against a swarming Denver defense and has managed just two touchdown passes through the Bengals' first three games. The lack of weapons behind A.J. Green in Cincinnati are a big concern for Dalton's fantasy outlook. He'll still be worth streamer consideration when the Bengals host a weak Dolphins pass defense on Thursday night in Week 4.

Andy Dalton (hip) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

Dalton was hobbling around after Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh but his presence at practice suggests the injury isn't anything serious. He might be listed as questionable but Dalton is in no danger of missing Week 3.
Sep 21 - 4:09 PM

Andy Dalton was reportedly "hobbling pretty badly" following the Bengals' Week 2 loss to the Steelers.

Dalton appeared to suffer an ankle injury in the second half, but he played through the issue. He might be limited in practice, but there is no reason to be worried about his Week 3 status right now. Dalton completed 31-of-54 passes for 366 yards and a touchdown against the Steelers, but the line looks much better than the performance. He was victimized by some drops, but he floated what should have been a touchdown to C.J. Uzomah and then missed the open tight end on the next play on a crucial late drive. Things will not get any easier with the Broncos next up on the schedule, especially if he is dealing with an ankle injury.

Andy Dalton completed 23-of-30 passes for 366 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Bengals' Week 1 win over the Jets.

He ran three times for seven yards and absorbed a whopping seven sacks as Muhammad Wilkerson and the Jets' defensive line won the battle in the trenches. Despite Darrelle Revis' shadow coverage, Dalton leaned heavily on A.J. Green, who went off like woah (12-180-1). With lesser weapons this year, Dalton will be no more than a QB2 at Pittsburgh in Week 2 and versus Denver in Week 3.
Sep 11 - 4:25 PM

Andy Dalton completed 6-of-10 passes for 77 yards and a touchdown in the third preseason game Sunday night.

Despite losing A.J. Green to a minor injury, Dalton was sharp. After a Jaguars fumble, Dalton found Gio Bernard for a 19-yard touchdown on a well-designed screen pass in the first quarter, and he led a massive, 16-play drive for a score on his final possession of the night. Unlikely to play next week, Dalton finishes the preseason 17-for-24 for 187 yards and one touchdown. He is a great pick in the 12th round.

Andy Dalton (thumb surgery) will be a full participant in Bengals OTAs.

The Bengals resume practicing in April. Dalton broke his right (throwing) thumb in Week 14 last year, cutting his best-ever season three games short. Dalton now has a new offensive coordinator in Ken Zampese, who has served as Dalton's position coach since he entered the league. "There’s a high level of trust," Zampese confirmed. "I know myself, I value his style, I understand his style. We just have a terrific relationship."

Andy Dalton (thumb) hasn't begun throwing yet.

"Not throwing yet because we are being very conservative with it," said Dalton in a text message earlier this week. "I feel like I can throw but no reason to push anything right now." Dalton was having his best season before a broken thumb ended it in Week 14. He should be ready for OTAs.
Feb 10 - 5:14 PM

Dalton was nearing a return before the Bengals were eliminated, but wasn't considered a lock for the Divisional Round. Now he has all the time in the world to get ready for the offseason program. Dalton was having a career campaign before going down in Week 14, and should return as a QB1 in 2016.
