Dalton Gets Cast Off, McCarron Preparing For Start


Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton’s recovery from a fractured right thumb took a step forward on Monday. Bob Holtzman of ESPN reports that Dalton had the cast protecting the injury removed after visiting with doctors, but that doesn’t clear him to return to the lineup against the Steelers on Saturday night. Dalton will now have to see how well he can grip and throw the ball, which leaves coach Marvin Lewis prepping AJ McCarron to make another start this weekend.
