The Cincinnati Bengals are preparing as if quarterback A.J. McCarron will start Saturday night's AFC wild-card game against the rival Pittsburgh Steelers, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

McCarron has started Cincinnati's past three games in place of Andy Dalton, who is sidelined with a broken thumb on his throwing hand.

Dalton is scheduled to meet with doctors Monday and hopes to have the cast removed from his right hand, but the Bengals still are uncertain whether the two-time Pro Bowler will be available against Pittsburgh.
