Andy Dalton Injury: Bengals QB Out With Wrist Injury

The first half of Andy Dalton's NFL debut went about as good as anyone could have possibly imagined. He completed 10-15 passes, threw a touchdown pass, and didn't turn the ball over to keep the underdog Cincinnati Bengals right there with the Cleveland Browns at halftime. However, he suffered a wrist injury in the last play of the first half and has not returned to the game.

Bruce Gradkowski has started the second half for the Bengals, who have not said anything about Dalton's injury status. If he has a serious wrist injury, it's a seriously bad break for the rookie. The Bengals weren't expected to do much this season, but Dalton looked about as good as you could possibly expect a rookie to look in his first two quarters of action. 

Cleveland currently leads the game 17-13, scoring a field goal in the third quarter to expand their lead.
