Jeremy Hill takes blame for Andy Dalton's neck injury

Andy Dalton is fine after suffering a minor neck injury on Saturday, but Jeremy Hill knows it could have been worse, and that's why he feels responsible for Dalton's injury. The Bengals got a minor scare Saturday night when their franchise QB suffered a neck injury on a 4th-and-1 QB sneak at the goal line. Though it was deemed to be minor enough that he would have kept playing had it been a regular-season game, the fact that Dalton even got dinged was enough to make Jeremy Hill feel bad. After all, the previous three plays had seen Hill unable to power into the end zone for the score after...

Bengals likely sitting Andy Dalton and most starters vs Colts in preseason finale

More AJ McCarron is on the way... in the preseason, that is. Don't expect to see the Cincinnati Bengals playing many, if any of their starters in Thursday's preseason finale against the Indianapolis Colts. After the starting lineups on both sides of the ball had good showings Saturday night in a 21-10 win over the Chicago Bears, it looks like the Bengals' coaches have seen everything they need to from their best players heading into the regular season. As Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson writes, don't expect Andy Dalton or many starters to play Thursday as the Bengals look to give their backups...

Coming into the Bengals' third preseason matchup with the Bears, Andy Dalton was expected to get all of the snaps with the starters as AJ McCarron was relegated to the second and third-team offense. However, Dalton left the game with a neck injury in the first quarter after just one offensive series, and that led to McCarron...

SI picks Andy Dalton to be AFC North MVP; Marvin Lewis as coach with most to prove

This is an unexpected take. The 2015 NFL season is approaching fast, and the Bengals will be looking for their fifth-straight playoff berth this year with Andy Dalton as their starting QB. Since being drafted in the second round out of TCU, Dalton has thrown for 99 touchdowns and 66 interceptions while going 40-23-1 in his first 64 NFL starts. While he's been a good player for the Bengals, he's rarely even been the second or third-best player on offense, let alone the most valuable player in arguably the best division in football -- the AFC North. That same division features the likes of...
