Dalton took to Twitter early Wednesday after he lost two suitcases while driving in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
If anybody in DFW traveling from 75-635 towards the airport finds 2 black suitcases on the road please contact me. Fell out bed of our truck— Andy Dalton (@andydalton14) February 10, 2016
The hashtag "#bagsearch2016" was born, as people kept spreading the word.
On Wednesday night, however, Dalton's nightmare ended. His suitcases were returned:
Now Dalton can get back to rehabbing his broken thumb -- he told ESPN.com Wednesday that he hasn’t thrown a football since his injury on Dec. 13 -- without having to worry about someone going through his luggage.
