Andy Dalton has no restrictions with thumb

Andy Dalton is back to zipping the ball. He’s got no restrictions with his throwing thumb; he’s got one visit under his belt to passing specialist Dr. Tom House last month, and after watching two of his most established targets leave via free agency he got one back with a Super Bowl ring and knows Pro Bowlers A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert are already here.

“It would be tougher if it was my first or second year, but this is year six,” Dalton says Monday from Dallas of his revamped receiving corps. “It’s easier for me now than early on in my career. That is going to be fun. We’ve got these guys from the start; we’ve got to get them exactly where we want them to be.

The two guys who lockered next to him and meant so much to the passing game won’t be here two weeks from Monday when the Bengals gather for offseason workouts. Wide receiver Marvin Jones turned down at least the same $40 million to go to Detroit and Mohamed Sanu got No. 2 money in Atlanta when a No. 4 role loomed in Cincinnati.

Fantasy Impact:

This past season Jones and Sanu represented 28 percent of Dalton’s yards and 16 percent of his touchdowns, the story said. In the wake of their losses the Bengals signed Patriots wide receiver Brandon LaFell who will move into the number-two slot opposite of Green.

ESPN - [Full Article]

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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.
