Dalton, who's listed as probable, was hit on his throwing arm after he released a pass during a 27-17 win in Cleveland on Sunday. His wrist and forearm bothered him so much that he couldn't grip the ball very well, forcing him to the sideline for the second half. Bruce Gradkowski led Cincinnati to the win.
Dalton completed 10 of his 15 passes for 81 yards and a touchdown in his first career NFL game.
